Erin Dionne writes humorous books with heart for tweens. Her titles--which are very long--have been named to several state reading lists, ALA lists, and have received some nice attention. They include MODELS DON'T EAT CHOCOLATE COOKIES THE TOTAL TRAGEDY OF A GIRL NAMED HAMLET, and NOTES FROM AN ACCIDENTAL BAND GEEK. Her latest novel, MOXIE AND THE ART OF RULE BREAKING: A 14 DAY MYSTERY, has the longest title yet and is based on the real-life Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum art heist. She spends an inappropriate amount of time on Facebook, teaches writing at Montserrat College of Art, and lives outside of Boston with her husband, two children, and a very indignant dog
It has humor, heart, and a touch of romance that will provide ample fodder for booktalks. School Library Journal Marching-band kids everywhere will enjoy this believable celebration of a life-changing, musical rite of passage. Kirkus"
