Lois Lowry by Deborah Grahame-Smith

Lois Lowry took her quiet, introverted view of the world and started writing a book about her sister. Soon her books were bringing readers to far-off places: into the war-torn past with Number the Stars and the science-fiction future with The Giver. This book spotlights Lois's ascent from wallflower to children's literature superstar.
