Brigit Young

Brigit Young is the author of the middle grade novels WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS, THE PRETTIEST, and BRIGHT. She was raised in Ann Arbor, Michigan, where she got through many a cold winter by reading all the books on her house's shelves. In elementary school, her mom introduced her to Shakespeare, and she fell down the rabbit hole into the addictive land of stories. Since then, she has published poetry and short fiction in dozens of literary journals, and taught creative writing to kids of all ages. Her debut middle grade novel, WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS, was a 2019 Bankstreet Best Book for Ages 12-14. Her sophomore book, THE PRETTIEST, was listed on Seventeen Magazine's 45 Books You Can't Put Down, and NBC News's "Celebrating Every Body: 9 Books to Help Young Girls Build a Positive Image." She lives in New Jersey with her husband and daughters.
