SALLY GREEN lives in north-west England. In 2010 she started writing and hasn’t stopped since. She used to keep chickens, makes decent jam, doesn’t mind ironing, loves to walk in Wales even when it’s raining. She really ought to drink less coffee.
HALF BAD is her ground-breaking first novel. It won the prestigious title of ‘Best Book for Teens’ in the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize, and broke the world record for most foreign language rights sold ahead of publication!
HALF WILD, the chilling sequel to HALF BAD, was published in March 2015.
