Virginia Euwer Wolff (born August 25, 1937) is an American author of children's literature. Her award-winning series Make Lemonade features a 14-year-old girl named LaVaughn, who babysits for the children of a 17-year-old single mother. There are three books. The second, True Believer, won the 2001 National Book Award for Young People's Literature. The second and third, This Full House (2009), garnered Kirkus starred reviews.[a] She was the recipient of the 2011 NSK Neustadt Prize for Children's Literature. 
^Kirkus Reviews of the three Lemonade novels (above) recommended them for readers age 10+, 12–16, and 13–15, and stated or implied that the heroine is 14, 15, and 17 years old. Evidently they compose a realist "coming-of-age" trilogy featuring an underprivileged urban girl.
