Karen Healey is the author of several young adult novels, and a complete dork. She wrote the urban fantasy adventures Guardian of the Dead, The Shattering, and the forthcoming sci-fi adventure When We Wake.
Guardian of the Dead won the 2010 Aurealis Award for Best Young Adult Novel, the Sir Julius Vogel Award for Best New Talent, and was a finalist for the 2011 ALA William C. Morris Award for Best Debut Novel.
She technically lives in New Zealand, but mostly on the internet.
Award winning young adult author and pop culture critic Karen Healey likes teen movies. A lot. In this collection of essays, she brings together her celebrated (and occasionally profane) musings on Bring It On, Clueless, Easy A, and many more. Includes an exclusive essay on The Craft, available only to ebook readers!
