Sona Charaipotra is not a doctor—much to her pediatrician parents’ chagrin. She has worked as a celebrity reporter at People and TeenPeople and has contributed to publications from the New York Times to TeenVogue. She uses her Masters in screenwriting from NYU and her MFA in creative writing from the New School to poke plot holes in her favorite teen TV shows—for work, of course. She is the co-founder of CAKE Literary, a boutique book packaging company with a decidedly diverse bent, and the co-author of the YA dance dramas Tiny Pretty Things and Shiny Broken Pieces, as well as the psychological thriller The Rumor Game. She is a proud We Need Diverse Books team member. Find her on the web or on Twitter.
