Thank you for being a reader of my books!

If you stopped on this page because you want to do a book report on one of my books, great. Or maybe you stumbled on it by accident and are trying desperately to go somewhere else. Either way, you totally rock!

Some things to keep in mind:

It’s a book report, so you have to read the book. 🙂 I won’t tell you the plot, theme, character motivation or anything like that. That’s your job! And my guess is that you are smart and can do it so go for it.

You should be able to find out everything you know on the site on various pages:

  • Denise Info: Check out the About page and the FAQs About Denise to see some questions and answers that people often ask.
  • For general stuff about the book like a summary, awards, and FAQs, go to the book page itself.
  • Search my site for other information.

If you still have questions you can’t find the answer to here, you can send me up to three questions using my Interview Form. But remember, like you I have a busy schedule so if you send me a request the night before or even a few days before your book report is due, chances are I won’t be able to respond in time.

For writing-related questions, you can check out:

Writer’s Hangout Get answers to frequently-asked writing questions and post some of your own thoughts and questions.

Resources for all WritersFind links and info to get started as a writer no matter what your age.

Resources for Young WritersFind links and info if you are a young person ready to write or already writing.

I love to hear that readers are writing their own stories and books! And I wish I could read them all. But unfortunately, I can’t. I just don’t have time. But I would encourage you to find a trusted teacher or a writing class in your area so you can get some feedback on your book.

I do take on a few manuscripts each year as paid critiques, usually not taking on writers younger than 12. You can find out more about getting a critique from me on the Manuscript Critiques page.

I love that so many readers write and ask if I can come to their school or library! I would love to if it fits my schedule and your school can pay for my visit and travel expenses where necessary. Talk to your teacher or library/media specialist and have them visit my Appearances page since the request will need to come from them. Some schools have had fundraisers to raise money to bring me out; I’ve included some suggestions on the Appearances page.

Reader Rap with Denise VegaThis is where you, my readers and peeps, can ask questions and get answers about books and life–my books or someone else’s books, or stuff my characters go through that you’re going through with friends, family, crushes, school, etc. Check out current videos to see if your question has already been answered. If you don’t see it, send your question to and I’ll do my best to answer it in an upcoming video! My goal is a minimum of one video per month, but if I get my butt in gear and you send enough questions, I’ll make them more frequently – every other week or maybe even every week–whoa. Click on the thumbnail to subscribe to my Reader Rap Channel.

  5. Hey Denise,
    I haven’t written a report on any of ur books but I just want to say 2 any1 who just wants to write a report on ur books w/o reading them doesn’t know what they’re missing. All of ur books r so amazing! I recogmend them 2 every1. I’ve read all of ur novels and <3 them

    • Thanks so much for saying that! I know a lot of people get away with writing reports without reading the book, and it’s too bad. Having the experience of the story is what separates a good book report from a mediocre one because your feelings about the story (positive or negative) will come through.

      You rock, girl!
