About the Author:

Norma Fox Mazer grew up in Glens Falls, New York, in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains.  Currently, she and her husband reside in Pompey Hills, NY.  Her husband is author Harry Mazer, and the couple has four children.  Norma is praised for her portrayal of characters with realistic problems and relationships that pull them out of struggles.  Norma finds literature to be a way to make sense out of a chaotic world.  Her books have received many awards, including a finalist for the National Book Award, a Lewis Carroll Shelf Award, the Christopher Medal, a Newbery Honor, and The Edgar.

Review:

It is a delicately wrought piece of fiction about a young girl fighting depressingly bad odds. When She Was Good often sounds like nonfiction.... not too good to be true, but too bad to be false. It is written with a stinging clarity and conviction. -- The New York Times Book Review, Liz Rosenberg
