Francesca Flores's "Diamond City"

Francesca Flores is a writer, traveler and linguist. Raised in Pittsburgh, she read every fantasy book she could get her hands on and started writing her own stories at a young age. She began writing Diamond City while working as a corporate travel manager.

When she’s not writing or reading, Francesca enjoys traveling, dancing ballet and jazz, practicing trapeze and contortion, and visiting parks and trails around San Francisco, where she currently resides.

Here Flores dreamcasts an adaptation of Diamond City:
This is such a fun question, but also difficult!! I think my main character, Aina, could be played by Bianca Santos. She's the actress who looks closest to her, though I'd hope to find a newer actress who's closer in age to Aina.

Luke Pasqualino would be the perfect Teo (Aina's best frined), he looks very much like the Teo in my head and has played in fantasy/action roles before.

Kat Graham would be great for the role of Raurie, who's one of Aina and Teo's other friends.

Tomohisa Yamashita would be Ryuu, yet another friend in the book. That would be a dream cast!
