“This is such a great cast of young and talented actors, and I’m looking ofrward [sic] to seeing how the adaptation turns out.”

“I’m just saying… this film should not be taken to demonstrate what YA writers are like. And I’m saying this because just this morning, three people asked jokingly me ‘Hey, is that writer in ‘Young Adult’ based on you? Har har har!’ This is going to be a thing. I can feel it.”

“These are the 11 novels I have most recommended to friends, family, and anyone else who has crossed my path this year.”
