Kacen Callender was born and raised in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands. He is the bestselling and award-winning author of the middle-grade novels Hurricane Child and King and the Dragonflies, the YA novels This Is Kind of an Epic Love Story and Felix Ever After, and the adult novel Queen of the Conquered and its forthcoming sequel, King of the Rising. Lark Winters, a title character of Lark & Kasim Start a Revolution (Amulet Books), wants to be a writer, and for now, that means posting on their social media accounts. When former best friend Kasim accidentally posts a thread on Lark’s Twitter declaring his love for a secret, unrequited crush, Lark decides to take the fall to protect Kasim. It seems like a great idea initially – but living a lie and the judgment of thousands of internet strangers takes a toll. Lark tries their best to be perfect at all costs, but nothing seems good enough for the anonymous hordes – or for Kasim, who is growing closer to Lark, just like it used to be between them. In the end, Lark must embrace their right to their messy emotions and learn how to be in love.
