Book Nerd Interview
Ten List - Things you would change about your high school years if you could go back in time.
1) Hindsight is 20/20, but I definitely would not have thrown that potato across the room in junior year Home Ec.
2) I wouldn’t have parked in the staff lot every day. The bridges burned weren’t worth the convenience.
3) I would have read more. The back-to-back whammy of freshman year Scarlet Letter and Ethan Frome almost turned me off books forever. Though I’ll admit this speaks more to my fourteen-year-old self than it does those novels.
4) I would not have taken Anatomy and Physiology. No matter how you justify it, dissecting a cat is weird.
5) I would have used my creativity and explored new experiences more often. When you’re fifteen you don’t see yourself as closing doors, but it’s what happens.
6) I wouldn’t have driven so many teachers to an early retirement. Mr. Wait and Mr. Zopes come to mind. Sorry guys.
7) I wouldn’t have used the TI83 solely for stopping alien invasions.
8) I would avoid falling through that window during the sophomore year 24-hour relay fundraiser.
9) I would not have devoted my “library time” to researching armor in World of Warcraft.
10) I would not have crawled out of the science wing windows and into the parking lot to drive home when there was a substitute teacher.
Music Playlist for ANTHEM’S FALL
I’ll keep it simple. One song for each character—you can decide which fits whom. They’re all instrumental. I don’t want lyrics to blur a first impression.
1) El Pico, Ratatat
2) Orion, Metallica
3) Dayvan Cowboy, Boards of Canada
4) I suppose I’ll add the Terminator 2 main theme, just on principle.
Set both in modern New York City and in the technologically sophisticated yet politically savage world of Anthem, Anthem’s Fall unfurls into a plot where larger than life characters born with the prowess of gods are pitted against the shrewd brilliance of a familiar and unlikely heroine.
