About the Author
Emily Bront? was an English novelist and poet, who, along with her sisters Charlotte and Anne, produced some of the most enduring works of the 19th century. Best known for her only novel, Wuthering Heights, Bront? published her works using the pen name Ellis Bell, a practice common for female writers at the time. Called the Sphynx of Literature, Bront? had no desire for fame and wrote only for her own satisfaction. She died of consumption in 1848 at the age of 30. Collectively, the Bront? sisters novels are considered literary standards that continue to influence modern writers.

S. E. Hinton was the first author to receive the Young Adult Services Division/School Library Journal Award for Life Achievement, and has received numerous other awards and honors. Her gritty and powerful novels have also inspired four major motion pictures. She lives in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
