Meg Cabot is an author who writes specifically for adolescents, teenagers, and sometimes tweens. Being a #1 New York Times best selling author, her multiple series and works have accomplished numerous awards.
I have read all of Meg Cabot’s books. She is so amazing; Meg Cabot themes her books based on her past experiences. She states, “I hope readers will realize that they are not alone in feeling the way I did when I was in middle and high school- like a great big freak! Also that “normal” is not what you see on TV. Being true to yourself, and to your friends, is way more important than being part of the “in crowd.” I am living proof that it is possible to profit from being a middle and high school freak.”
Her method of writing truly inspires many teenagers across the nation. Some books of her that I specifically have enjoyed are: The Princess Diaries series, the Avalon High series, Jinx, the Underworld series, and the Airhead series. These books are truly fascinating, themed on regular teenage girls who go through different complications in their lives.
Avalon High, especially, is one of my all time favorites because of the techniques that Meg Cabot infuses into the series. She mixes history with modern day cultures, and makes a surprising twist. The series is based on the legend of King Arthur; this is a must-read! Also, particularly because I prefer the paranormal romance genre, the Underworld series is a marvelous collection. Truly, Meg Cabot is a wondrous author, and I am looking forward to her future works.
