  • Charlotte shares some insight into Declan and Skylar's characters and what it takes to write a swoony boy.
  • We talk about some of Charlotte's experiences attending a boarding school and what her favorite scenes in Going Geek were.
  • We find out the characters from Charlotte's books that she'd most like to introduce.
  • We dish music and Charlotte gives some sage wisdom to her 17-year-old self (and teens everywhere).
