VOX Stories

  • The definition of Popular

    Teen author Maya Van Wagenen already has a hit memoir and possibly, a movie on the way!

    Not many teens have written a New York Times bestseller by age 15, but Maya Van Wagenen has. During middle school, Maya stumbled across Betty Cornell’s "Teen-Age Popularity Guide" and decided to see if the book’s tips worked for her. Her social experiment had an unexpected twist: Cornell's guide was published in the 1950s.

  • Maggie Stiefvater, the epitome of cool

    From "Shiver" to "Sinner," the author discusses her inspirations, fave books and her pet fainting goats

    Clad in shredded jeans and Doc Marten boots with a strict no-regret policy, Maggie Stiefvater pretty much epitomizes what it means to be cool. For those who either have been living under a rock or do not read popular fiction, Maggie Stiefvater is a New York Times bestselling author of many young adult novels, including the internationally bestselling “Shiver” trilogy, “The Raven Boys” series and “The Scorpio Races.” Her latest book, “Sinner,” is the standalone companion book to the “Shiver” trilogy and is out in bookstores now. In addition to being an author, Maggie Stiefvater is a professional portrait artist, competitive bagpipe player, and a proud owner of many animals, which comprises fainting goats and “three dogs who fart recreationally.” So again, I repeat: she pretty much epitomizes what it means to be cool.
