Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven

  My other YA author friends for continued camaraderie and inspiration, and all of the booksellers and librarians and educators and bloggers I have met over the past two years. You are rock stars supreme, and I can never thank you enough for all you have done for me.

  The Jackson 5 for keeping me company as I wrote, Sam and Dean and Supernatural for helping me escape at the end of a long day, and the prolific and talented Jack Robinson for writing what has become one of my favorite songs of all time—“I Love to Love”—and graciously allowing me to quote his lyrics.

  My family and friends, near and far, especially my heart home, Louis, Angelo, Ed Baran, and my literary kitties—I wouldn’t have made it through the past two years without you.

  This book is for my funny, stoic, brilliant dad, who was always having to ask me to turn down my music (but who was the one responsible for building me the world’s best—and biggest—stereo system).

  And it is for my mother, who gave me dancing shoes and the words to accompany them. She taught me to walk in other people’s skin, to know that I could be anything I wanted to be and do anything I wanted to do, and she never once made me forget that I am wanted. Holding Up the Universe is the first book I’ve written that she will never read, but you have read it, and that means more than I can say.
