Ep. 41: Ali Benjamin, Author of The Next Great Paulie Fink

This week I’m sharing an interview with one of my favorite middle grade authors, Ali Benjamin.

Ali Benjamin is a New York Times bestselling author. Her new middle grade book, The Next Great Paulie Fink  is about an oddball school in the middle of the woods and a group of misfit kids who decide to hold their own reality TV-style competition. Her 2015 novel, The Thing About Jellyfish was an international bestseller, a National Book Award finalist, and garnered multiple best-of-year accolades.
