I love Mary Pope Osborne's young adult novels--"Best Wishes, Joe Brady," "Last One Home," "Run, Run, As Fast As You Can." They are all wonderfully written, with clear, witty, sharply observed prose and memorable characters caught in all-too-plausible conflicts. The dialogue is pitch-perfect and the stories work on a deep level of emotional complexity.

Growing Up

I grew up in the military. By the time I was fifteen I had lived in Oklahoma, Austria, Florida, and four different army posts in Virginia and North Carolina. Moving was never traumatic for me, partly, I think, because I had very close and loving relationships with my parents, my twin brother, my younger brother, and my older sister.
