Four books that changed Samantha Van Leer

Samantha Van Leer is the co-author, with her mother Jodi Picoult, of two young-adult fairy tales. One of four books that changed the writer, as shared at the Sydney Morning Herald:
Mindy Kaling

Mindy Kaling is my role model. She's a smart, confident woman who is comfortable enough in her own skin to laugh about the ugly truths in her life. Her quick-witted autobiography made me laugh uncomfortably to myself in public places. She's inspired me to want to write about the ridiculous adventures my best friend Katie and I had when I was growing up.
Read about the other books on the list.
