Ally is the author of the Matched Trilogy, a #1 New York Times and international bestseller. MATCHED was chosen as one of YALSA’s 2011 Teens’ Top Ten and named as one of Publisher’s Weekly’s Best Children’s Books of 2010. The sequels, Crossed and Reached, were also critically acclaimed and received starred reviews, and all three books are available in 30+ languages. Her novel Summerlost was a finalist for a 2016 Edgar Award for Best Juvenile Mystery.
She is the founder of the non-profit WriteOut Foundation, which runs writeoutcamp.org–a writing camp for teens that allows students to work with published authors, experience the outdoors, and enjoy other activities (plays, costume balls, rock climbing, and more). Ally lives with her husband and four children outside of Salt Lake City, Utah. She loves reading, writing, running, and listening to her husband play guitar. (Photo Credit: Erin Summerill)

why i am part of this campaign?
"As a parent, former teacher, and author of books for kids, I was instantly interested in and felt passionate about the Kneaders Hope Fights Childhood Cancer project. James Worthington is a friend and neighbor of mine, and his family has been extremely wonderful and giving to my children, including my special needs child. I jumped at the chance to be a part of a campaign that gives hope to parents and kids who are affected by cancer. I think what this team is doing is tremendous."
