How did you decide on the personality of your characters? What was the discussion between the two you?

What life event was happening for you when your oddest story idea began assembling itself in your imagination? Have you written it?

It appears that both authors live in Atlanta.  What if anything about the story do they feel is unique to that city as a setting?

Are we going to hear more from Lena and Campbell? Will there be another book coming out featuring these two?

Where were all the adults??? Pops was just sitting at home? Campbell’s dad gone fishing? Her teacher just forgets Campbell? Such a series of irresponsible parents...

I would ask what the motivation for the story was. Was she just wanting to voice the matter of racism or did she have a friend that was part of one of these protests or unfair police actions?

Have you ever dealt with anything as scary and terrifying in real life? When did it happen? Who was with you?

I would ask the author... What happens next? Do these girls go back to their own separate worlds or do they continue the odd pairing that formed that night?

What made you decide on a YA book? Did either or both of you experience a riot?

@Tere

I'm fortunate to be friends with both authors and can answer this question for you! In fact, I spoke to them both about this yesterday for our Professional Book Nerds podcast. Neither of them experienced a riot but they saw articles about the Baltimore riots and were inspired to write a story that was based on that but in the area they live. They wrote YA because they're passionate about the genre, being both fans of YA literature and also being in the YA world for so long (Kim used to help run a YA book store for a decade+).

What challenges and benefits did you experience by writing this novel together?

What were you thinking when you wrote the book?

My first question would be - what motivated you to write this book & what message were you hoping spoke loudest?

My second question - if there’s no sequel (I’d love a sequel) 🙂 when finishing the book - how did you envision Lena & Campbell’s relationship working out after that night?

@Haze

Awesome question. 

I would love to know the answer as well.

I could see this turning into a series.
