Angela Cervantes is the best author I have read within the realistic fiction genre. I believe she is the best author within this genre because of her experience with the subject involved, middle school. She has experience with this subject because she used to be a middle school teacher. This provides a different perspective on the genre because most authors were never teachers. She understands what the students go through, the drama, and how the teachers act. Not many authors in this genre are the same. Another great thing about Angela is that she is trying to teach the youth that is reading her novels by putting in lessons into her books (see previous blog post or information). Due to this the kids that read her books are learning important life lessons and learning by reading. Angela Cervantes is truly the best author.
