Jenny Torres Sanchez
Torres, a young adult author, was a high school English teacher who decided to write for people like her students because of the "cool discussions" she had with them about books like the Scarlett Letter and The Great Gatsby. Her other books include The Fall of Innocence; Because of the Sun; Death, Dickinson, and the Demented Life of Frenchie Garcia, and The Downside of Being Charlie.
