Hi there! I’m Alex Karola, author of young adult resilience literature, stories about characters overcoming adversity. I am an advocate for positive self-image and mental health awareness.

Resilience literature is an idea developed by Laurie Halse Anderson, an author I respect and admire. Anderson uses this term to describe any book whose goal “is to help strengthen kids facing difficult situations.”
