Rebecca Behrens lives and writes in New York City, where she also works as a copy editor. She is the author of When Audrey Met Alice, which BookPage called “a terrific work of blended realistic and historical fiction,” Summer of Lost and Found, which School Library Journal praised for its “deft writing,” and The Last Grand Adventure, which Kirkus recommends as “a quirky, heart-rending journey.” Her latest, The Disaster Days, is a realistic survival story that Booklist called “a tense, honest tale of bravery,” and it is a Junior Library Guild selection. Some of Rebecca’s favorite things are: the beach, history, running, nature, doughnuts, and laughing.
