Boston Globe Correspondent Sarah Mupo sat down with Lisi Harrison ’85 September 16 to talk about her latest book, Monster High.

Harrison is also author of the best-selling book series The Clique, which has taken young American women by storm.

In the interview, Harrison explained that she enjoys writing young adult fiction because she gets to do whatever she wants. “As long as I can ground it in some reality—even if that reality is completely far-fetched—[the readers] are along for the ride,” she said.

Harrison will read from her new work at the Wellesley Booksmith on September 21 and at the Brookline Public Library on September 22.
