Jennifer Van Der Berg would like you to know that the book ostensibly written about her—Born to Be Extraordinary by Eileen Codlin—is a bunch of bunk. Yes, she had a fairy godparent mess with her life, but no, she was not made into a princess or given the gift of self-confidence, and she sure as hell didn't get a hot boyfriend out of it.

About the Author

Adam Selzer lived in Des Moines back before it was cool, then tried out a series of small Georgia towns that will probably never be cool before settling in Chicago. In addition to several books on Chicago history and ghostlore, he's the author of several young adult and middle grade novels, including "How To Get Suspended and Influence People" (which is part of the ALA's Banned Books Week packet), "I Kissed a Zombie and I liked It", and "Sparks" (under the name SJ Adams, a Stonewall Honor book for 2013). He has seen Bob Dylan in concert more than forty times, holds a world record for "Most Richard Nixon jokes in a Children's Book," and often performs music, both solo and with various bands, at science fiction conventions.
