Ellen Hopkins, quite frankly, could not write any better.
if you disagree, your brain dead.

Heidi is a dear friend and Freeze Frame is an excellent book. I watched it grow from an idea, into this great story.

I can't wait for Perfect... I've been hoping she would write about this for a while now..
Impulse and Identifal made me cry. It was like I was there and I felt the emotions..

Nothing definite on movies yet, but some interest. Other verse novelists include Sonja Sones, Susan Taylor Brown (Hugging the Rock), Mel Glenn.

Hi, Ellen. My school is making an "IMAG," which is like an online magazine. You are the 'Author of the month' for February. I'd just like to let you know, and leave a "thank you," for your powerful writing. I'll leave a link when it's up.
Also, not to be disrespectful toward Lisa, but a lot of students have read and/or experienced things similar to Kristina. I do think parts may be a bit adult, but I think it's smart that Young Adults are informed of where their actions could take them. I may be a high schooler, but I do think "It's better safe than sorry."

Lisa, I am a fourteen year old and I read that book when I was thirteen. It touched my heart. I knew that people went through such things, but it is nice to see from the users perspective of what they feel and what they're going through. I must agree with Ellen that you are out of touch with teens. It helped me open my mind to knew things. To understad how the people that I know, who do drugs, are feeling and how they need help. All her books made me feel that my life could be worse and that I should be so fortunate. It showed me that not everyine gets a happy ending, but in the end you may just be okay after all. You need to open your heart and your mind and put yourself in that teenagers shoes that you saw reading the book. Maybe they are going through something and seek comfort through these books like I did. She has a right to feel like she is not alone and she can read what she wants as long as SHE is okay with the book and herself.

I've read all of your books and I think they're amazing. Even though I don't think movies do books justice, I think it'd be great to see any of yours taken to a visual level. I could relate so wholly to a lot of your characters. I think it's kind of crazy how insightful you are and how compelling your writing is. Ellen, never stop writing!
