The S-Word by Chelsea Pitcher

Lizzie wasn’t the first student at Verity High School to kill herself this year. But the difference is, she didn’t go quietly.

My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Oh, I don't have a motto, and I don't read maxim ;) Really, life is too fluid for me to pick one motto and stick to it. I adapt.

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?

A. You'd have to ask the people around me. I write more than I talk.

Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?

A. I would have to alternate between thai food and pizza. You can't make me choose!

Q. Who is your favorite fictional villain?

A. I loved Elphie in Wicked, but her villainy was revealed as compassion. I like that, the complexity. No one's ever 100% good or bad.

Q. Which living person do you most admire?

A. It's impossible to pick just one. From a distance, people who devote their lives to improving their world and speak their mind even when it scares them. Close up, there are many people in my life I greatly admire.
