Laurie Stolarz - you can read about her in SLJ, AND you can be her LJ friend

I was reading this article, and thought wait a minute - she's on my friends' list. It kind of gave me a secret thrill.

Anyway, School Library Journal reports "Flux, Llewellyn’s young adult fiction imprint, has repackaged Laurie Faria Stolarz’s Blue Is for Nightmares (2003). Stacey Brown, a hereditary witch but otherwise normal teenager, has prophetic dreams about her best friend being murdered by a psycho killer. Although everyone at her boarding school is a suspect, Stacey, with the help of the folk magic she has learned from her grandmother, is determined to find the would-be murderer before her nightmares come true. The book, which has sold more than 100,000 copies and is the first in a series, was cited by ALA’s Young Adult Library Services Association as a Quick Pick for Reluctant Readers in 2005 and as a Popular Paperback for Young Adults in 2007."
