Birthday Fun: Pretty Crooked Character Interview and Giveaway

Pretty Crooked (Pretty Crooked #1) by Elisa Ludwig
Releases: March 13th, 2012
High school sophomore Willa and her artist mother move to Arizona where Willa starts attending an elite prep school after her mother finally sells some paintings, and Willa attempts to even things out by stealing from the rich students and giving to the poor ones.

When does your birthday fall?
It's in May. That makes me a Taurus: Mess with the bull you get the horns!

Top 5 party essentials?

- Cake (see below)

- Great music

- A supercute dress (like this one on the left:

- Party attitude

- Party people

How do you choose to celebrate your special day?
I usually just do something with my mom (we were moving so much I never had a chance to make too many friends), but this year, I'm hoping to have Aidan, Cherise and Tre around. I don't know if I'm up for a big party, considering all that has happened to me, but I would love to be surrounded by the people I care about, for a nice dinner or something.

What’s the best gift you’ve ever received?
The fab fuzzy seat for my bicycle. Thanks, mom!

What about the worst present you’ve ever gotten?
I don't think I've ever gotten a bad gift. Usually my mom seems to know exactly what I want/need.

It’s cake time! What are we stuffing our faces with?
Oooh. Let's say (in honor of Aidan) chocolate cake with salted caramel icing! Yumz.

You can invite ANY 3 people (alive, dead, celebrity, your secret crush, ect!) to your birthday bash, who are your selected picks?
Well, I mentioned the real people above so here goes my fantasy list (in addition to the others, of course!):
- Emma Stone (love her fashion sense)
- Robin Hood (maybe he could give me some tips)
- Thoreau (he could help me with my Comp homework)

Thanks so much for sharing your birthday with me, Rebecca! I hope it's an extra-special day!
