I write about the interior lives of girls; those fragile narratives; the cleaving of best friends, the flights of bravado, the risk of trying and trying anything. My first book is called Uses for Boys:
“Lots of teens will see themselves in the pages of this beautiful, honest novel.”
Booklist
“Grim, Gritty, and heart-breakingly real”
MTV Hollywood Crush
“It is refreshing to see girlhood written with such empathy and intelligence.”
Los Angeles Review of Books
“Daring and unafraid.”
Stacked
“It will help anyone who reads it unravel some of the mysteries they carry in their hearts.”
Rookie
“There is a section in this fabulous, mesmerizing young adult novel that was so sad I could feel it throughout my entire body. My limbs grew heavy and my frown deepened. At one point I said to myself, ‘I don’t think I can bear this.’ It was so awesome.”
Book Riot
“Scheidt’s haunting yet poignant and poetic story encourages girls to believe in their own importance and realize that their past does not have to dictate their future.”
School Library Journal
“Haunting, frank and un-put-downable.”
Kirkus
