Author Bio
Alice Hoffman
Hoffman is the daughter of a real estate salesman and a social worker. When they divorced, she was raised by her mother on Long Island. A voracious reader, Hoffman has had a lifelong interest in magic and fairy tales, and her reading has had an obvious effect on her own writing, which tends to incorporate fantasy and myth. She has a B.A. from Adelphi College and an M.F.A. from Stanford.

Praise

New York Times Book Review
"This spare, haunting novella with dreamy blue illustrations is Hoffman's 14th book, her second for young readers. For them, it is a lovely introduction to the author's storytelling genius and matter-of-fact, lyrical style...Adult readers who have fallen under her spell won't want to miss AQUAMARINE either." - Jan Benzel 06/03/2001
