My debut YA novel releases today, and I figure what better way to celebrate than sharing the 5 earliest signs that I would end up a writer...

So here they are: the 5 (slightly embarrassing) signs that predicted my future!

1. I started a book club in elementary school with my best friend—and assigned her books to read so that we could discuss them. 

2. I did this mainly because I was intent on starting a club of some sort. (Children of the 90’s will understand this best. What were friends for if not to start a Babysitter’s Club or a Saddle Club or a Friends 4-Ever club??)

3. One of my biggest childhood fights with my parents was when they almost stopped me from meeting Judy Blume in our local bookstore. (Don't worry: I won out in the end, and still have my signed book to prove it!)

4.  I wrote really, really bad poetry. Everyone has to start somewhere and mine was a leather bound book filled with terrible poems—mostly about my dog.

5. I also wrote (or attempted to write!) plays, which I then would convince my sister and cousins to perform for our (poor, patient) parents.

TRUTH OR DARE is out today!
You can find it at:

Jacqueline Green received her BA from Cornell University and her MFA in writing for children from The New School. She grew up in Wynnewood, PA and now lives in Brooklyn, NY with her husband and their tiny dog, who moonlights as her writing companion. Truth or Dare, the first novel in a trilogy, is her young adult debut.
