All right, now that I've gotten that out of the way, I'm taking the dare this week. It comes courtesy of my friend and fellow Thirteener, April Tucholke, who dared me to do a reading from Flowers in the Attic. With its touchy themes, I'm not sure how it would do today, but back when I was a young teen it was the book to read. Not only was this the book we hid from our parents, it was also the one we hid from our teachers at school.
Up next on Tuesday, June 12th, is the lovely Jenn R Johansson! Got a humiliating truth or dare for her? It'll be her very first as a Thirteener, so go here to submit!
Elsie grew up in Prince George, BC, before graduating from the University of British Columbia with a BA in English Literature. She currently lives in Vancouver with her husband and two kids, where she writes to either movies on a loop or music turned up way too loud (and sometimes both at the same time). She's repped by The Chudney Agency, and her debut novel, DUALED, will be published by Random House in February, 2013. A sequel, DIVIDED, will be published February, 2014.
