Notes of Interest
Jodi Lynn Anderson lived for a time in Georgia and is the author of several books for children and young adults. In 2010, her first book for young readers, "Peaches," was chosen for inclusion on the Georgia Center for the Book's inaugural list of "25 Books All Young Georgians Should Read."
She was born and grew up in New Jersey and now makes her home in Washington, DC. "Peaches" is the delightful story of three teenaged girls from very different backgrounds thrown together one summer in a Georgia orchard, all in search of the right boy, the truest friend and the perfect peach. She says that when she lived in Georgia, she "ate peaches, peach pie and peach ice cream as often as possible." Her other books include "The Secret of Peaches" (2006), "Love and Peaches" (2008) and the May Bird Trilogy: "May Bird and the Ever After: Book One" (2005), "May Bird Among the Stars: Book Two" (2006) and "May Bird, Warrior Princess: Book Three" (2007).
