Alexandra Robbins

Alexandra Robbins' work aims to represent voices that aren't often heard, such as "good" boys (FRATERNITY), nurses (THE NURSES), and student outsiders (THE GEEKS SHALL INHERIT THE EARTH). She typically follows real-life "main characters" for a year so that readers can curl up with a smart, beach-read-style story that is "Impossible to put down" (People Magazine), "better than reality TV" (Elle Girl), and "keeps readers both captivated and well-informed" (Booklist). FRATERNITY is the only book about what it's really like to be in college today. For new character updates, contests to win free books, or to give feedback or discuss issues, etc., you can find her on Instagram and Facebook @AuthorAlexandraRobbins, on Twitter @AlexndraRobbins, or at -- Alexandra Robbins, an award-winning journalist and speaker, is the author of five New York Times bestselling books, including Goodreads' BEST NONFICTION BOOK OF THE YEAR.

Among other honors, Robbins received the John Bartlow Martin Award for Public Interest Magazine Journalism, a Books for a Better Life Award, and the Heartsongs Award for "contributions to the mental health of children and young adults."
