Carol Weston knows a thing or two about young girls and teens. She has written 16 books for and about them, and since 1994 has been the "Dear Carol" advice columnist at Girls' Life magazine. Weston's signature book, Girltalk: All the Stuff Your Sister Never Told You, is now in its fourth edition and has been translated into over a dozen languages. She is also the author of the Ava Wren series and the Melanie Martin series. Weston's latest book, Speed of Life, was praised by The New York Times as "perceptive and moving and funny."
