Simone Elkeles Event!


I went to a local high school yesterday afternoon to see Simone Elkeles speak! She was quite brash, very funny, and super talkative. Simone talked about how she became a writer, doing research for her books, and how she came about working with these great young men on movie-style book trailers for her Perfect Chemistry books (all three trailers can be seen on her website).
Simone, "Alex", "Carlos", and "Luis"
The teenage girls in the crowd were super excited since Simone brought along the three young men who play Alex (he is also the groom in Katy Perry's music video), Carlos and Luis in the book trailers!

After the talk we made our way to one of the classrooms where they had the mobile cafe, a DJ, books for sale and the guy who plays Alex (Alex Rodriguez) even got up and danced for a while. It was all very fun, not like a regular book signing. There were even girls who had traveled 6 hours to meet them.
