Literary QOTW: Joining Forces
2010'sWill Grayson, Will Grayson was co-authored by John Green and David Levithan, with each author writing every other chapter. Which two YA authors would you like to see team up to write a novel, and why would they work well together? Stefanie says: Meg Cabot (Princess Diaries) and Stephanie Perkins (Anna and the French Kiss)should definitely write a book together. Their writing styles are similar, and they're both wonderful at writing strong, funny female leads. Plus, they know how to get a laugh. That book would be hilarious. Add Maureen Johnson to the mix, and that would be one EPIC book! Chris says: I'm thinking that Chris Crutcher (Deadline) and John Green(The Fault in Our Stars) would write well together. They have similar writing styles, have tackled similar topics within their books, and know how to throw in a laugh-out-loud moment here and there. Crutcher tends to write about more popular/jock-type characters, while Green has mastered writing about quirky/independent-type characters. A book that combines these two perspectives would be a YA lit juggernaut.
