No, the story is quite funny. It’s about a teen girl who is figuring out who she is. And admires Rupert. πŸ™‚

“I think Rupert is a much cooler person to be a fan of than so many young stars of today”

Amen! She seems really nice. And the way she descibed getting into Rupert sounds like my story. Well, here’s to all around pleasant guys. πŸ˜€

Thanks again! I just have to add that the Peeps diorama was for a contest that I had with my students to make a Peeps diorama about a book around Easter time. I don’t just sit around turning Peeps into Weasleys πŸ™‚

‘I don’t just sit around turning Peeps into Weasleys.’

Don’t worry, Julie, it wouldn’t be a problem if you did so!! πŸ™‚ I would love it if here in my country people made dioramas with candy πŸ˜€ I guess if I did a peep diorama, some of my characters would vanish without trace… XD

“I’m torn between Barrett, the really cool, sweet, sympathetic older brother, or Henry, the dorky love interest.”

I agree with both choices. But because Rupert seems way too much like Henry, I’d rather him play Barret. It will be more of a challenge. I adored the book Julie! Thanx^_^

Great interview, Karo! I can’t wait to read my copy. Currently I’m reading The Blue Bloods and I don’t want to get the genres mixed up in my head. LOL

I need to tell our school librarian about Julie’s books. Not only do they sound great, but she’d probably love to have a Chicago author’s books on the shelves of a Chicago high school!
