Welcome to the online home of Abigail Tarttelin
Abby is the author of ALEX award winner Golden Boy, the beautiful, heart-warming and heart-breaking novel about intersex teenager Max Walker and his family. The American Library Association ALEX Award recognizes adult books that have special meaning for teenage readers and Abby is very happy that this will enable Max’s story to reach teenagers across the USA and help them to question gender norms and stereotypes.
Golden Boy has also been featured in Vogue, Vanity Fair, Cosmopolitan, O Magazine, Heat, Glamour & more, and was a Booklist Top 10 First Novel of 2013 and a School Library Journal Best Book of 2013.
When not working on Book 3, Abby writes about books for Phoenix Magazine and blogs for the Huffington Post and The Guardian. In 2013, she was named one of the London Evening Standard’s “25 Under 25” and “Power 1000″.
