Who am I? Who will I become? These are tough questions for any teen to answer. In READ ME LIKE A BOOK, 17-year-old Ashleigh Walker’s life has become a whirlwind; from coping with her parents’ marital troubles, to navigating her first sort-of relationship, Ash’s future is daunting and uncertain. The answers to these questions become even less clear when Miss Murray --- the cool English teacher --- takes over Ash’s class...and her heart. Miss Murray becomes the one constant for Ash; forcing her to try a little harder, to care a little deeper, and to confront these difficult questions head on. In this interview with Teenreads.com’s Terrell Orr, author Liz Kessler discusses the social and political climate surrounding the novel, her thoughts about social media, and what she has in store for readers next!
