Janet Edwards is the author of Earth Girl (Pyr, March 2013). She grew up in prosaic England but also shared the lives of amazing people in fantastic worlds. Her guides were books written by authors, some still famous and some already forgotten. Those authors have hundreds of individual names, but they have one title in common. They were all Expert Dreamers. After growing bored with work involving tedious technical facts, Janet made a break for freedom through a magical wardrobe and is now training as an Apprentice Dreamer. She has a husband, a son, a lot of books, and an aversion to housework.
"Action, rich archaeological detail and respectfully levelheaded
disability portrayal, refreshingly free from symbolism and magical
cures, make [Earth Girl] stand out."
- Kirkus Reviews STARRED REVIEW
"Tired of bitter, angst-ridden heroines and their associated dark dystopias? Look no further than [this] refreshing debut." - Booklist STARRED REVIEW
"With a dash of action, sprinkling of romance, some teenage angst and a couple of collapsing skyscrapers, this novel contains everything you could possibly want to grab a teenage reader and keep them utterly enthralled." - Starburst
"Earth Girl delivers a shiny future you'll actually want to live in - perhaps the first true utopian YA. Refreshingly original with big ideas and even bigger surprises, this thrilling novel is firmly grounded in complex and compelling characters." - E. C. Myers, author of Quantum Coin
