To introduce Lisi Harrison, author of the controversially snarly and hilarious series The Clique (newest edition, #6: Dial L for Loser, just sauntered onto the shelves), we thought it best to let this fan who posted on Amazon speak:
Being 13 and one of the self-proclaimed biggest fans of the Clique series, I would say that this one (#6) did not fail me at all! I mean, being from a part of California that's actually (gasp!) not Los Angeles, Laguna Beach, Orange County, or Beverly Hills, I really don't like reading books that talk about L.A., but, being a Clique lover, I just had to read it. I hearted it! People that don't like it most likely don't have any of these three things: style, imagination, or fun.
Hey, absolutely, Allison of California! So we dialed L for Lisi, she answered, and here's the result:
Who is your favorite writer that most people have never heard of?
Every girl that has written me fan mail. Their letters are hilarious, honest, creative and sweet. They keep me going.
What kid or teen books rocked your world growing up?
Harriet The Spy by Louise Fitzhugh - Inspired me to become a writer. And taught me how much fun it can be to observe the people around you.
A Wrinkle In Time by Madeleine L'engle - Showed me the power of imagination.
Nancy Drew by-Carolyn G. Keene -Made me want to have a boy's name (how cool is the name George for a girl???)
What one thing do you wish you could say to your 15-year-old self?
Don't smoke. Trust me you will want to quit eventually and when you do you will gain 15 pounds, cry for weeks and curse the day you ever started. (FYI- I haven't had a cigarette in 8 years. YAY me!
Your life is a TV series. Name the theme song.
A mash-up of Material Girl by Madonna and Free To Be...You and Me
Burger-flippers want to know: have you ever had a job that required you to wear a geeky uniform? Details, please!
When I first started at MTV my old boss made me get inside a Butt-Head costume (as in Beavis and Butt-Head) and march in a parade through Aspen, Co. People were hanging out on balconies whipping snowballs at my massive head and it kept tipping over. Eventually two big dudes had to walk beside me to keep me from losing my balance and and eating pavement.
We'd like to name a burger in your honor. What kind of fixins should it have?
Mac & Cheese with ketchup. Call it the Mac & Cheeseburger.
