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 is your greatest achievement?

A. Not giving up. I'm still working on that one. It's kind of a lifelong process.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. Sunlight by the ocean, with someone I love, and the ability to write and experience new things, but close enough to home so I could curl up in the comfort of familiarity.

Too much?

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. 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?
