AUTHOR OF TURN IT UPFAIRY TALE REFORM SCHOOL SERIES, I'M WITH THE BANDBELLES SERIES, SECRETS OF MY HOLLYWOOD LIFE SERIES, SLEEPAWAY GIRLS, AND SIDE EFFECTS

Bio: It's no secret how Jen Calonita knows the inside scoop on Hollywood. A former entertainment editor at a teen magazine, Jen started out her career chronicling backstage life at concerts with Justin Timberlake and interviewing Zac Efron on film sets. Jen usually likes to write about worlds she knows so it wasn't until she wrote Belles, which is about two polar opposite girls who share one life-altering secret, that she entered a world different from her own. It was so much fun creating a new world that Jen jumped into a fairy tale one for her first middle grade series, Fairy Tale Reform School. Jen's other middle grade series is one close to her heart. The VIP series and the first book, I'm with the Band, is a diary-eye look at life on the road with the world's biggest boy band as told by their number one fan.
