LIESL SHURTLIFF
The Struggle is Real.  (And good.)

Liesl Shurtliff struggled to learn how to read, then struggled to want to read all the way through high school.  Today she is the bestselling and award-winning author of the middle-grade books, Rump, Jack, and Red.  And she struggled to write every single word.  How do we turn reluctance into passion and struggles into triumphs?
