Author Info
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
"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."
