Sadly, she doesn't speak French.) is a young adult author and English teacher who lives in Texas with her family. A native of the East Coast and a former journalist, she enjoys writing contemporary young adult fiction that treats teenagers like real people. Jennifer loves to eat and hates to cook.

The story was about a dancing ape inside a library.
