Books by Meg Cabot

The author of The Princess Diaries and Allie Finkle's Rules for Girls has been writing since high school. She discovered the library and devoured classic literature to escape hot Indiana summers—To Kill a Mockingbird, Jane Eyre and Edith Hamilton's Mythology, among others. Her newest series, which kicks off with Abandon this week, explores the dark side of Greek mythology, the Underworld, though it's set where she now spends part of the year: Key West.
