How to Be Almost Famous in Ten Days
by Kathleen S. Allen
Publication date: March 15th 2013
Genre: YA Contemporary
Seventeen-year-old Cassie Cee feels invisible because she's a double-digit size. She finds a book in a secondhand bookstore that she hopes will change her life. Her best friend's brother wants to make vlogs about how she is following the ten rules she found in the book, why she is doing it, and how she feels about being invisible for his school project. She agrees, but only if he promises no one but his college advisor will see the vlogs. He promises, but a friend of his posts them online and they go viral. When one of the "famous rules" puts her best friend, Rachel in a dangerous situation, Cassie makes one last vlog and Chuck posts it online. But emails begin arriving from other girls who have felt invisible, and she realizes she has to own up to being "the real Cassie Cee."
This or That?
Print or Ebook?
Can I say both? I love to read on my Kindle but I also buy print books.
Beach or Pool?
Beach. One of those lonely, deserted beaches that no one goes to filled with interesting driftwood and colored glass along the shore line on a day when the sea is not exactly angry but annoyed.
Pizza or Pasta?
Pasta. I’m allergic to tomatoes.
Horror or Romance?
Horror. But not before bed. LOL.
Coke or Pepsi?
Harry Potter or Twilight?
Harry Potter. I’m still waiting for my Hogwarts letter to arrive.
Gum or Breath Mints?
Breath mints if it’s Mentos.
Summer or Winter?
Can I say autumn? I don’t like to drive in the snow but I like to look at it. I don’t like heat so I prefer a cooler temp.
Facebook or Twitter?
Twitter. It works like my mind does.
Chocolate or Vanilla?
Vanilla. Allergic to chocolate.
Spontaneity or Planning Ahead?
It all depends on the situation. I prefer spontaneity in my writing but plan trips ahead of time. However, I will meander off the plan if need be.
Black or White?
Hot or Cold?
Night owl or early bird?
TV or Movies?
It depends on what it is. Both.
Truth or Dare?
Text or Talk?
Both. It all depends on who it is.
Diet or Regular?
Diet Coke or Diet Dr. Pepper but regular everything else.
Christmas or Thanksgiving?
Mountains or Ocean?
Spotlight or Shadows?
I prefer the shadows but always end up in the spotlight. I am a former theater major after all. Okay, you got me, spotlight it is. LOL.
Kathleen has been writing since she was eight years old when she self-published her first book. Okay, she hand-copied her poems onto plain white paper, paper punched three holes in the sides, made an orange and blue “book jacket” and threaded red ribbon through the holes that she tied with a bow. Ta Dah! Her first book! She’s been writing ever since. She writes in different genres but YA is her favorite.
