While she was in graduate school, she began writing articles for The Saturday Evening Post and Look. Byars writes novels for young people.

Her book about a 14-year-old girl and her mentally retarded brother, The Summer of the Swans (1970), won the Newberry Award as the most distinguished contribution to children's literature that year. Other books include The 18th Emergency (1973), The TV Kid (1976), and After the Goat Man (1995).
