Holy Crackers and Cream Cheese! Oh, Mylanta! You're here!
What's up? My name is Crystal Allen and I write books for middle-graders. Go ahead and be nosey, that's right, get all in my Kool-aid even if you don't know the flavor! It's okay. Make sure you check out information about my debut novel, How Lamar's Bad Prank Won A Bubba-Sized Trophy, and now you can read about my new book, The Laura Line!
Find everything, like how to get in touch with me, my events schedule and other things you may want to know. But seriously, chil'ax, lean back, and enjoy my website, especially since I built it for you!
"...from the first sentence Lamar will have readers hooked."
Starred Review, Publishers Weekly 1/11
"This stands out for its unusual setting and smooth integration of friendship and family concerns."
"From the opening line, Lamar's self-aggrandizing narration is fresh, funny and intriguing..."
"Crystal Allen has the rare ability to make you laugh out loud one minute, and swell with tears the next...a brilliant new author!"
Neal Shusterman, author of Unwind, Bruiser and The Schwa Was Here
