Laura Bowers is a young adult novelist, wife, mother of two great teenage boys, Baltimore Orioles fan—no matter what their record is, coffee addict, and compulsive list keeper. Her first novel, BEAUTY SHOP FOR RENT, a “Steel Magnolias for Teens,” was nominated for the 2009 Kentucky Book Award, 2009/2010 Volunteer State Book Award, and the 2010 New York State Reading Association’s Charlotte Award. Her second novel, JUST FLIRT, will be coming out in spring 2012 by Farrar Straus Giroux. When she’s not writing, she can be found reading, cheering for her boys at a baseball field or basketball court, or working on a to-do list that never gets done.
