The best books start here.

Paul Acampora writes novels and short stories for young readers. Kids, parents, and critics praise his work for its laugh-out-loud humor, rollicking dialogue, and heartfelt characters. His books include Defining Dulcie (Dial 2006), Rachel Spinelli Punched Me in the Face (Roaring Brook 2011), I Kill the Mockingbird (Roaring Brook 2013), How to Avoid Extinction (Scholastic 2016), and his newest novel, Confusion is Nothing New (Scholastic 2018), which is fueled by bighearted 80s rock&roll, a touch of the Goonies, and large doses of Cyndi Lauper’s girl-power joy. He and his family live in Allentown, Pennsylvania.
