Mary Amato is the author of many acclaimed books for children including Invisible Lines, which was nominated for the California Young Readers Medal and was selected for the Missouri Truman Awards Master List. Of that book, The Washington Post states, “you may come to learn . . . an important lesson about what really matters in life. But amid all that learning of important lessons, there will be a good bit of giggling, too.”
A prolific songwriter, Mary sings, plays the guitar, and teaches songwriting. She also performs in the Washington, DC, area. Guitar Notes is her first novel for young adult readers.
