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’s your fantasy profession?

A. You're looking at it.

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.

Q. What are your 5 favorite songs?

A. I have a really eclectic taste in music. I love artists like Tori Amos and Ani Difranco, and I'm also a long-time Hanson fan. Also, really poppy stuff that's good for dancing. Picking artist is easier than songs. Songs would be next to impossible (too many to choose!) I'm being difficult, aren't I?
