Interviewing The Teen Boy Part 3

It's been a while and my teen boy interviewee will be leaving for college at the end of summer (weep) so I thought it might be good to bring him back to the blog for more Q & A before I have to go find another teen boy to badger into an interview.

1. I've tried to find the most "boy-friendly" covers I could. Of these four, which is your favorite?

 TEEN BOY: I like Exit Here the most because it doesn't feel cluttered. It's very simple.

2. Watch this movie preview. Would you ever go see this movie? Does it seem like a chick flick even though the main character is a dude?
TEEN BOY: Yeah I might go see this, it doesn't seem like a chick flick to me. I'm sure guys would still go see it too, not only because Emma Watson is in it, but because it actually seems like a good story (yes I would rather watch the movie over the book haha.)

3. Dudes in pink and purple--- yes or no?

TEEN BOY: It depends how bright it is. Plenty of guys wear pink at school, but not as much purple. Either way I'd say it's fine.

4. What one book will you maybe read this summer?

TEEN BOY: I hope to finish The Art of Fielding. It was given to me as a graduation present by a trustworthy librarian. 

5. Would references to older music (not like your mom or dad's but like maybe stuff that's sort of dated) bother you in a book? What about a book that mentioned Facebook? Would you wonder if that will be obsolete in a few years?

TEEN BOY: It depends how I connect to the song. If it was one that I've totally forgotten about and used to like, I would love the reference. I wouldn't be thrilled by a Facebook reference, but it wouldn't ruin anything for me. I feel like FB will still be around in a few years, but it will be interesting to see what's next.

6. Do all your friends still use FB or has it reached the point of annoying?

TEEN BOY: Pretty much everyone still uses FB. There isn't anything else that really has the "fan base" to compete.

7. If someone gave you $100, what would you do with it (no questions asked)?

TEEN BOY: I would probably keep the money in my room for awhile, and then if I ran low on cash I'd get change in 20's and then deposit some of it. A majority of the money would go towards food, most likely Chipotle.

And that's it! I'd like to thank my awesome teen boy for answering honestly and being full of win as usual. Hopefully, we'll get to have him back one more time before he leaves for school.

awww! my neighbor's youngest son is also flying the coop. i am hanging on as my oldest just became a teenage boy. love the q & a, helpful to hear what he thinks!

and i saw on Deana's blog you're an editor for Samhain. I met Heather Osborne at the reader/writer get together last weekend. i'm sure she doesnt remember, it was just at the dinner table. but that's cool!

um, this rocked! what a great way to share the inside of a teen boy's mind, such a mystery to me. i have 7 years before my oldest becomes one... i can't imagine him grown and leaving me! christy

Pink on boys, simple book covers, and Chipotle. Great interview! :D

Jolene Perry said...

I'm way excited about the movie.

Also - I'm 100% in agreement on the book cover. Love that one.

Thanks again Christa's friend! We're going to miss you too.

Funny; EXIT HERE is the only one of those I haven't read, but I like the cover best. An example of a title matching perfectly with an image and making you wonder what the book is about.

Great questions!

Nice perspective. I have absolutely no teen boys in my life. No wonder I sucketh at writing them.

Talli Roland said...

I love the Teen Boy interviews! It's a great chance to get a glimpse into his mind... :)

Deana said...

You can't go wrong with Chipolte:) And that old music/FB question was a great one!

Heather said...

It's so cool to get this inside glimpse, love it!

ali cross said...

Aw, sad! You're gonna have to find a new BOY. He'll be hard to replace though, eh?

I loved his answers. I totally predicted EXIT HERE! But was surprised that a FB reference would kinda sit weird with him.

Fun as always!

Oh no! So sad when they go! I get my lil bro to help out with the "teen boy mind" (he's 21, but in college, so it works).

Love these interviews. And after seeing those covers (aside from With or Without You, I've read and adore) I have to check them out. And SUPER PUMPED for Wallflowers.
