Biography

Claire LaZebnik

I grew up in Newton, Massachusetts, went to Harvard and moved to LA. (My name was Claire Scovell for a large part of all that.)  I’ve published four YA novels with Harper Collins: EPIL FAIL, THE TROUBLE WITH FLIRTING, THE LAST BEST KISS, and  WRONG ABOUT THE GUY. I co-wrote OVERCOMING AUTISM: Finding the Answers, Strategies and Hope That Can Transform a Child’s Life and Growing up on the Spectrum: A guide to life, love and learning for young adults with autism and Asperger’s. My co-author, the brilliant Dr. Lynn Kern Koegel, is the clinical director of the Koegel Autism Center at the University of California in Santa Barbara.
 
I live in the Pacific Palisades with my husband Rob (who writes for The Simpsons), my four kids (Max, Johnny, Annie and Will) and too many pets to keep track of.

Meet Chloe Mitchell, a popular Los Angeles girl who’s decided that her older sister, Ivy, who’s on the autism spectrum, could use a boyfriend. Chloe already has someone in mind: Ethan Fields, a sweet, movie-obsessed boy from Ivy’s special needs class. Chloe would like to ignore Ethan’s brother, David, but she can’t --- Ivy and Ethan aren’t comfortable going out on their own so Chloe and David have to tag along.  Soon Chloe, Ivy, David and Ethan form a quirky and wholly lovable circle. Chloe is forced to confront her own romantic choices --- and the realization that it’s okay to be a different kind of normal.
