Four books that changed Samantha Van Leer

Samantha Van Leer is the co-author, with her mother Jodi Picoult, of two young-adult fairy tales. One of four books that changed the writer, as shared at the Sydney Morning Herald:
V.S. Ramachandran

Ramachandran is a neuroscientist who studies phantom feelings, such as phantom limbs, phantom pain, phantom pregnancies. He writes hardcore science in an accessible, easy-to-read form. His insight into the mind and the crazy mirages it creates was addicting. As an author and a psychology major, it was cool to see a book that bridged the gap between highly scientific writing and popular non-fiction.
Read about another book on the list.
