|Look at all these people! (photo from Joseph Beth's facebook page) Also, if you look far right, halfway up, that's Steph (with the great hair) and Sarah (in the white top)|
After reading for fifteen minutes, Veronica answered questions. We loved her answer about the factions: "I think bravery is important. Fear keeps people from doing good things for each other." And her philosophy on characters: "No one is safe. Ever." That's bravery indeed!!
Proof that John Green's influence is everywhere: When Veronica was asked what she's reading right now, she mentioned THE FAULT IN OUR STARS, and the audience cheered and clapped. She also said she reads a lot of books that aren't out yet, like Leigh Bardugo's SHADOW AND BONE. (We can't wait for this one too! Go here and pre-order, get a free map).
