So, I need a title.
Most of you will remember the anthology I edited about Phillip Pullman’s His Dark Materials trilogy. Since then the same publisher (Teen Libris) has done a number of these collections, including this recent one about Stephenie Meyer’s Twlight series:
Lately, Teen Libris and I have been discussing a similar project for yours truly—a book about the Uglies series.
Of course, this is very different from Bubbly to Bogus, which is a behind-the-scenes guide to Tally’s world, with maps, diagrams, and such. This anthology will be a dozen or so other YA authors writing essays about the series, with subjects like:
“David vs. Zane”
“Shay: Evil Antagonist or Secret Hero?”
“Why do people get plastic surgery?”
“The dangers of technology and conformity”
“Slang and language use in the series”
“Radical Honesty versus being Pretty: are they the same thing?”
“The idea of wilderness in the series”
This is just a random list, but it gives you the idea.
So my question is, What do we call this book? Here are few lame suggestions of mine:
The Color of Cat Vomit
Adventures in Special Circumstances
Facing the Future
Some of these are okay. But we’d really like to have your help this.
So comment away, and give us some good titles!
