I am very excited to be part of the blog tour for the wonderful Perdita & Honor Cargill. Their final book in their trilogy is out this week and first off, I can't believe the final book is almost here and second, these books are amazing and I can't recommend them enough! They are so fun and are written by two of the most loveliest authors I have ever got to know!
Waiting For Callback: Casting Queen
Waiting For Callback: Take Two
Waiting For Callback: It's A Wrap
I am excited to welcome these two authors on my blog today talking about their top 3 teen movies!
Let me know in the comments your favourite teen movies!
3 Top Teen Movies
Perdita: The seventies were not a golden age for teen movies, the classics like The Breakfast Club and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off were mid-80’s (*groan) so I’m going to leave this one to Honor…
Honor: I’m still a teenager (just) but this list is already scarily nostalgic… Basic? Unquestionably. Classic? Absolutely.
Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging
I’m choosing this one so I can plug the books by Louise Rennison – they’re brilliant and they’ve influenced every single author who writes funny teen books. The film is good too. Very British, very cringe. No question, it’s also a bit weird – there is not a girl in the movie whose number one obsession isn’t to get a boyfriend, nothing else gets a look in - but I’m going to stay loyal. How could I not – she goes to a party dressed as an olive…
Emma is my favourite Austen, I’ve got a high tolerance for difficult heroines and Cher Horowitz is up there. She is so wilfully, funnily awful for most of the film (Alicia Silverstone is brilliant in this). Yes, I do think the being in love with your step-brother thing is weird but then I’m not at all sure Mr Knightley is a sound choice for Emma… And, yes, I did dress up as Cher to go to YALC…
This is the best teen movie ever and I’ll fight anyone who says otherwise. Lindsay Lohan is amazing in it and it’s funny and real. (Being a weird child I read Queen Bees and Wannabees, the non-fiction self-help book it’s based on – explained pretty much everything that needed explaining about school…). It also gets a prize for being the most quotable teen movie ever.
Now I want to go and watch them all again…
Perdita and Honor Cargill co-write the Waiting for Callback series, published by Simon and Schuster. The last book, It’s A Wrap is published on 31 May 2018. Pre-order through The Big Green Bookshop for signed copy and a chance to win a prize here or through Hive, Waterstones, Amazon or your other favourite retailers.
About the authors
Perdita Cargill: I used to be the least numerate tax barrister ever to practise in the English Courts. Frankly it was a relief all round when I hung up my gown & wig and turned (after a bit) to writing. I'm a bit of a wimp. On the upside I do like teenagers. Actually I like quite a lot of people.
Honor Cargill: I'm in my first year at Oxford University studying Classical Archaeology and Ancient History (niche...). I've done loads of acting mostly just school plays but a tiny bit of professional too and although I'm nothing like Elektra I feel her pain because her most humiliating moments are strangely similar to mine. Actually she has it easy not only was my first kiss on stage but it was in front of my parents and my headteacher. So naturally I decided to write about it so all you guys can mercilessly take the piss out of me too. Enjoy.
