Nic Stone

Nic Stone is the author of the New York Times bestseller and William C. Morris finalist Dear Martin and its companion novel Dear Justyce, which looks at the lives of black incarcerated juveniles. She also wrote the teen novels Odd One Out, an NPR Best Book and Rainbow Book List Top Ten and Jackpot, a love-ish story that takes a searing look at economic inequality. Clean Getaway, her middle-grade debut, deals with coming to grips with the pain of the past and the humanity of our heroes. It received starred reviews from Publishers Weekly and Booklist, who called it "an absolute firecracker of a book."
