Meet the Writers
With his knack for zeroing in on the fears and foibles of the teenage set in novels like Lucas, British author Kevin Brooks creates books that both adolescents and their elders can relate to. "I like the idea that a book, once you've finished it, if it means something to you, has characters that stay with you forever, like a good friend," he reflect. "And that's the kind of stuff I try to write."
