About the Author

Holly Goldberg Sloan was born in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and spent her childhood living in Holland; Istanbul, Turkey; Washington, D.C.; Berkeley, California; and Eugene, Oregon. After graduating from Wellesley College, she began writing family feature films, including Angels in the Outfield and Made in America. Her first middle-grade novel, Counting by 7s, is a New York Times bestseller. Holly lives with her husband in Santa Monica, California.


Praise for Short New York Times Bestseller "Short joins other middle-grade novels . . . in celebrating the transcendent power of theater for kids."--The New York Times Book Review "Holly Goldberg Sloan is skilled at creating sympathetic and utterly charming young characters, and in Short she succeeds once again. . . . Sloan manages to deftly weave in tough topics like grief and identity with both the same humor and tenderness that made Counting By 7s such a hit." --Entertainment Weekly * "Sweet and uplifting. . . . It's refreshing that Julia doesn't mind being short and believes she's 'little, but big inside.' Her self-acceptance is inspiring and the joy she experiences in her foray into theater is irresistible." --Booklist, starred review "A charming read with an important message that no matter one's stature, 'the way we move tells the world who we are.'" --Kirkus "Very funny. . . . Theater kids and fans of Tim Federle's 'Nate' books will love this." --School Library Journal "Sloan again captures the authentic voice of a child dealing with weighty topics, including loss and identity, in a charming and often funny way. . . . A narrative filled with lighthearted and candid moments." --Publishers Weekly "A joy to read."--School Library Connection "This is . . . a jubilant story about the way a new context can give kids a whole different perspective on life and themselves, and readers feeling stuck in their roles will particularly appreciate the implication."--BCCB "The funny narration is in Julia's rambling, middle-school voice, which allows readers to experience her emotions and maturation with her. . . . Highly recommended."--VOYA
