An Encounter with Jackson Pearce, Author of SISTERS RED

As promised, I will be doing a review on Sisters Red. The hot, new novel by Jackson Pearce. You know, the one EVERYONE is raving about. Yup, that one! Speaking of which, I happened to meet her this morning! She came over to my school (all the way from Atlanta!) to speak to a limited number of students. I know, I feel special! As I was walking down the flights of stairs on my way to the school library (where the meeting would be taking place), I was thinking, "Oh, she's probably another one of those stuck up, I'm way to cool for everyone in this room, type of person." I mean what else could you expect from author whose work is enjoyed by many, many teens? Boy, was I in for a surprise! As I walked in through the doors of the library, I noticed a young woman, dressed in a lovely black dress and taupe sweater, smiling and greeting everyone. I was just like, "Whoa!". I mean, this was Jackson Pearce. Even as she began to introduce herself to us, she slipped off her shoes, saying they were way to uncomfortable. I think this was the trick that made us all believe that she is super cool and laid back. Throughout our entire discussion, she remained easy-going, fun, and quirky. Just like her novel! Now I know that not every famous person is snotty, some can actually be really, genuinely kind! Look for the review of her novel and some of her discussion coming soon!

  1. It pleases me so much to hear that she hasn't turned into yet another stuck up famous author. I wish i would have been there to meet her but for now I'm just going to have to get to know her by reading her books or better yet your blog! Anyways..i have seen many girls carrying this book around and I can't wait to see what the hype is about!!


I would love to hear your thoughts!
