Celeste Harris on Inside the Characters' Studio!

I'm starting a new recurring spot on MacLeanSpace...Inside the Characters' Studio, in which I ask main characters in YA novels to answer the Pivot Questionnaire. First in the hot seat, Celeste Harris, the star of Erin Dionne's Models Don't Eat Chocolate Cookies.

For the record, Celeste is awesome. She's funny and clever and I kind of want to hang out with her when she grows up. I hope she moves to New York. :)

What is your favorite word?

What is your least favorite word?

What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
My Theo Christmas CDs!

What turns you off?
Mean people. Especially Lively Carson.

What is your favorite curse word?
I don't really curse. I said "bitch" once, but my Author had to take it out of the book.

What sound or noise do you love?
The song "Ruby Red Hair," by Theo Christmas. Or the crinkling that happens when you open a bag of Oreos.

What sound or noise do you hate?
Laughter, when it's directed at me.

What profession would you like to attempt?
I think I'd be a good teacher, maybe.

What profession would you not like to do?

If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
I've never considered Really Big Questions before. I mean, I'm thirteen. How do I answer that? Like, if I die tomorrow? That would be awful, and I'd want God to say that He was sending me back, or something. But if I am supposed to answer it as though I were old and died, I have no idea.

Thanks, Celeste! Good luck with your debut! And that Ms. Husky Peach contest!
