Here Strohmeyer dreamcasts an adaptation of her new novel, This Is My Brain on Boys:
I suppose I had Ellen Page in mind when I wrote about my extremely literal, brilliant and warm-hearted character Addie. (Poor Ellen. The curses of a youthful face!)Visit Sarah Strohmeyer's website.
For Tess, her redheaded, wild, intuitive friend, I would love Jennifer Lawrence, and for Kris, I like Ellar Coltrane because I think he can pull off a serious guy with a definite insouciance.
But, to be honest, when I wrote the book I had in mind my son’s friends who are now juniors in college. That was the way it was with Smart Girls Get What They Want, too…. I like blending characteristics of people I know.
