Author Portraits, Kayla Cagan, Piper Perish

I just finished reading Piper Perish, written by Kayla Cagan. And I loved it! Piper Perish is a beautiful story about an artist growing up and following her dreams. Here's a quote about the book "Piper will have readers asking big questions along with her. What is love? What is friendship? What is family? What is home? And who is a person when she’s missing any one of these things?"
I had the opportunity to photograph Kayla, look how great her author portrait looks on her site:

Be sure to visit Kayla's website ( to read more about her and her work. You can also look under "books" on her site and order your copy of Piper Perish. Get busy reading Piper Perish now, because Kayla has the next book in the series coming out this fall. Art Boss is the follow up to Piper Perish and I can't wait to read it!

Her new book Art Boss is also #1 on Amazon's Young Adult Books list right now! Yay! Way to go Kayla!
