Gina Loveless


“Diary of a 5th Grade Outlaw”


Coopersburg, PA


Gina Loveless fell in love with kids’ books when she was eight and fell back in love with them when she was twenty-eight. She earned her MFA from California Institute of the Arts. Her mission as an author is to help all the weird kids of the world feel less alone. When she’s not writing or reading, Gina can be found in boogying at concerts with her husband, tending to their awesome produce garden, or snuggling with her rescue dog Gerdie.

About "Diary of a 5th Grade Outlaw"

Fifth grade has just started, and the school bully, Nadia, already rules recess with an unfair Playground Tax. Robin refuses to be pushed around, but all she can think about is winning back her best friend, Mary Ann, after a disastrous fallout over the summer. To do so, she will have to stand up to Nadia, face the wrath of Assistant Principal Johnson, and become a legendary outlaw at Nottingham Elementary—, all while forming a merry band of new friends along the way.
