  • Pretty Monters


Through the lens of Link's vivid imagination, nothing is what it seems, and everything deserves a second look. From the multiple award-winning 'The Faery Handbag,' in which a teenager's grandmother carries an entire village (or is it a man-eating dog?) in her handbag, to the near-future of 'The Surfer,' whose narrator (a soccer-playing skeptic) waits with a planeload of refugees for the aliens to arrive, Link's stories are funny and full of unexpected insights and skewed perspectives on the world.

Her fans range from Michael Chabon to Peter Buck of R.E.M. to Holly Black of Spiderwick Chronicles fame. Now teens can have their world rocked, too!
