Hello Amanda! We are super excited to have you back in our FFBC tours.
Could you tell our Book Addicts a little bit about SUCH A GOOD GIRL?
This is pretty tough to do without giving anything away! SUCH A GOOD GIRL is a book full of twists and turns. It’s like nothing that I’ve written before. My other two books were multiple POV, and this focuses on a single character.
Can you tell us a bit about Riley? She seems like a girl that knows what she’s doing. How would you also describe her personality and how she fits in your story?
Riley is the most interesting character I’ve ever written. She’s intelligent and insightful and is incredibly powerful, and I like that about her.
Can you tell us about Riley’s style?
She has very classic style, and doesn’t follow trends, but you see her exploring a few daring pieces thanks to her best friends.
How did you come up with the story? Did you find inspiration in any other story/movie/show and how has this affected your writing?
I have to be careful with these because I don’t want to give anything away, but the first seeds of this story came from the idea of blame! My publisher compares this book to Pretty Little Liars and Luckiest Girl Alive.
Tell us your favorite quote from SUCH A GOOD GIRL.
Welllll…I can’t actually tell you my favorite quote, because it’s a bit of a spoiler. But I’ll tell you this one:
“Riley Elizabeth Stone is just about perfect. Ask anyone.”
I also love this quote:
“It’s almost like being good is the perfect alibi for being bad.”
Is there a specific scene that you had the most fun to write?
Yes! We’ll call it the pizza scene. You’ll know it when you get to it, but honestly, who doesn’t love pizza? There’s also possibly kissing. Pizza and kissing.
If you had to pick one song to be the Theme Song for SUCH A GOOD GIRL – Which one would you pick?
This is actually easy! There are perks to living in Nashville, and one of my good friends, Lexi Larsen, is a country singer. She wrote this song called “Bad” and ever since I heard it, I knew it was the theme song for Such a Good Girl.
Imagine that we get to see your book on the big screen (how awesome would that be?). Who would you pick to play your characters?
Riley is a brunette Sophie Turner
Alex is Ben Whishaw
Neta is a younger Diane Guerrero
Kolbie is a younger Tanisha Harper
Are there any recommendations you could give your readers to be in the “perfect mood” to read SUCH A GOOD GIRL (specific music, snacks…)?
Personally, pizza and nachos make me happy. I’m not sure how they would fare at the beach, but you could always slip this book into a beach bag, too, and take it on your next vacation!
What’s next for you?
I’m so excited to share that Such a Good Girl will be published in France by Lumen Editions!
Thank you so much for everything, Amanda!
