About the Author
Rachel DeWoskin spent her twenties in China as the unlikely star of a nighttime soap opera that inspired her memoir Foreign Babes in Beijing. She has written two novels, Repeat After Me, and Big Girl Small, the coming of age story of a sixteen-year-old with dwarfism. Big Girl Small received the American Library Association’s Alex Award, and Rachel’s conversations with young readers inspired her to write her first YA novel, Blind. Rachel lives in Chicago and Beijing with her husband, playwright Zayd Dohrn, and their two little girls.
