"
All’s Faire in Middle School is a delightful, funny, and thoughtful adventure through the challenging worlds of friends and family. Huzzah!"—Jennifer and Matthew Holm, New York Times bestselling authors of Sunny Side Up

"Victoria Jamieson's graphic novels are gateway drugs to all the best nerdy hobbies." —Cory Doctorow

★ "Readers will cheer [Imogene's] victories, wince at her stumbles, and likely demand visits to the nearest faire themselves to sample the wares and fun." —
Kirkus, starred review

★ "Jamieson doesn’t disappoint in her first graphic novel since her Newbery Honor–winning 
Roller Girl." — Publishers Weekly, starred review

★ "As heartfelt as it is gorgeous, this is a worthy addition to any middle grade graphic novel collection." — 
School Library Journal

"
Roller Girl was terrific...All’s Faire in Middle School is even better…The story has shades of Harriet the Spy, Monty Python and Peanuts, and the ending is tremendously satisfying without feeling false or unearned…I dub thee brilliant." — The New York Times Book Review

"Jamieson masterfully taps into the voice and concernsof middle-schoolers.... Kids wholoved Jamieson’s
Roller Girl will adore this one, too." — Booklist

"Middle school is about to get a lot more Faire thanks to Victoria Jamieson’s latest graphic novel."—
Entertainment Weekly

"Imogene’s story is a Renaissance tale itself—an experience complete with tension, laughter,
anticipation, heartbreak, and delight." —
The Horn Book

"The mean girls/oddball family themes feel fresh, and the explicitly stated moral of 'You’re not the center of the damn universe!' goes down easy." —BCCB

"This might be the best graphic novel that I have ever read."
— Nerdy Book Club 

“This colorful graphic novel is rich with themes of belonging, friendship, family, making tough choices, and finding your own way.”—International Literacy Association

"A spot-on depiction of the complexities of family dynamics, the nuances of friendship, and the longing to fit in vs. the pull of being true to oneself. Gloriously illustrated in full color, every inch a pleasure. Grade A.” 
—Sunday Plain Dealer  --This text refers to the paperback edition.

I grew up in Havertown, Pennsylvania, where I wrote and illustrated my first book in the third grade. SUPER COW! was a smash hit both with critics (my teacher) and collectors (my parents).

When I was twelve years old, my family moved to Florida. My parents tried to get me and my two brothers excited about our move by buying us season passes to Disney World. I loved watching the animators at work on the Backstage Tour, and I decided I wanted to work for Disney when I grew up.

I attended the Rhode Island School of Design, but soon found myself drawn back towards illustration instead of animation. After graduation and a slew of ill-fated careers (including a portrait artist on a Carnival Cruise ship and a conductor of illegal tours through the Vatican Museums), I began working as a book designer with a children's book publisher in New York.

I live in Pennsylvania with my husband, son, and surly cat Sharon.
