Favorite Authors: Melina Marchetta

When I was actually a teen, I was really not a fan of realistic YA at all. Partly this was because there wasn’t much that wasn’t in the after-school special genre, partly because I was pretty sheltered, and partly because I just loved fantasy so much. Regardless, it wasn’t until much later that I started discovering that there were books I liked in realistic fiction. And one of the very first ones I found was Melina Marchetta. I had heard about Jellicoe Road and gulped it down and loved it instantly. I have liked all of Marchetta’s realistic fiction and absolutely loved both Jellicoe Road and The Piper’s Son. I have to thank her for opening the doors of realistic fiction to me.
