Pat Gallagher Sassone

From author's website:
Pat Gallagher Sassone (, a New York City high school teacher, has known many students who struggle to make life changing choices. She is enchanted with stories in many forms such as poetry, songs, films and tweets. A graduate of Queens College and New York University, this is her first novel.

“I write for young adult readers because they feel life’s joys and sorrows so intensely. They are exploring many of life’s experiences for the first time. Teens make especially wonderful readers because they are innovative and creatively seeking their distinctive voices.”
