Marieke Nijkamp

Marieke Nijkamp is a storyteller, dreamer, globe-trotter, geek. She holds degrees in philosophy, history, and medieval studies, and wants to grow up to be a time traveler.

Nijkamp's debut young adult novel is This Is Where It Ends.

Recently I asked the author about what she was reading. Her reply:
I love young adult novels that push boundaries, with characters who are exciting, flawed, human. As such, I'm currently reading Laura Tims' wonderful Please Don't Tell, a dark YA thriller about a girl who believes she killed a boy to protect her sister, although she doesn't quite remember the details. The story kicks into gear when an anonymous blackmailer confronts her, and what follows is an unflinching, tense narrative about sisters, secrets, and how far we'll go to protect the ones we love.
