SUTHYHollis Seamon"Somebody Up There Hates You" is a young adult debut novel by Hollis Seamon. The setting is a hospice, and the hero, 17-year old Richard Casey, and his crush, Sylvie, who lives across the hall, set out to prove that kids will be kids, even if they have a terminal illness.

Seaom spent years visiting a children's hospital while caring for her son, and this book is dedicated to the young heroes she met there.  Seamon received a fiction fellowship from the New York Foundation for the Arts and is a professor of English and creative writing.
