About the author (2008)

Melissa Walker is a writer who has worked as ELLEgirl’s features editor and Seventeen Prom’s editor. All in the name of journalism, she once spent twenty-four hours surrounded by male models and even attended an elite finishing school for girls in New Zealand—among other hardships.

She recently fulfilled a lifelong dream when she appeared as a talking-head “expert” on VH1’s The Fabulous Life of: Celebrity Kids.

Melissa lives in Brooklyn, New York, and has a BA in English from Vassar College. She would tell you her SAT scores, too, but, you know, the math part was hard.
