About me:Welcome to my my-oh-my MySpace page. My latest book, HOW I MET AND OTHER STORIES, just came out, as did a novel I wrote with two friends under the name David Van Etten, LIKELY STORY. (For more info, check out David Van Etten in my Top 8 below). Also just out -- a collection called UP ALL NIGHT, which has six stories, one of them mine, and the other five by some pretty amazing folks. . I'm also the author of the novels BOY MEETS BOY, THE REALM OF POSSIBILITY, ARE WE THERE YET?, MARLY'S GHOST, WIDE AWAKE, and, co-written with Rachel Cohn, NICK AND NORAH'S INFINITE PLAYLIST (soon to be a movie with Michael Cera and Kat Dennings!) and NAOMI AND ELY'S NO KISS LIST. I've also edited some cool anthologies, including 21 PROMS, THIS IS PUSH, THE FULL SPECTRUM, and WHERE WE ARE, WHAT WE SEE. When not at home writing, I'm the editor of PUSH (www.thisispush.com) and other Scholastic books. Check out the MySpace page for PUSH (also listed in my top 8). My website is www.davidlevithan.com, and if you doubt that this is really me, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. But truly...I promise this is me. If you want to get bulletins when new book news occurs, just send me a friend request and subscribe the blog here.
Who I'd like to meet:Readers. Of my books, or of any books.
