Joan Bauer is an award-winning American writer of young adult literature. The main characters in her books are typically teenagers who are dealing with complicated family issues, such as alcoholism, abandonment, illness, and self-esteem issues, but such issues are faced with a light touch and humor is added in to lighten it up.
