David Levithan is a MUCH beloved author around our parts. Mainly, everything he writes is magic. But seriously. I have yet to read something by him I don't love which why we recommend him again, and again, and again.
Levithan actually started out at age 19, with the Scholastic Corporation, working on The Babysitter's Club (A link, for all you youngins who have no idea what that is.) He still works for Scholastic, editing in between writing his books.
You hear a LOT of other authors talk about him, always fondly. I know he is the editor for Libba Bray's book and also was there when Patricia McCormick write Cut. He edits for all these authors through a company he founded called PUSH, which promotes edgier and more controversial books for teens (which is kind of why we love him, isn't it.)
He's written SO MANY books, including Boy Meets Boy (his first, and the one we'll be reviewing this week), Everyday (his newest), and Will Grayson, Will Grayson (written with John Green, who is equally amazing.)
To learn more about him, go visit his website, or his facebook page, or his twitter. Let's face it. He's pretty much everywhere.
