Have you ever read a story and wondered what you would do in that situation? Would you run into the abandoned house after the killer? Or run screaming from the scene to analyze the whole thing with your friends? Would you be bold enough to flirt with your crush—even though he has a girlfriend? Or would you quietly back off, in hopes of meeting a better guy to crush on?
In Your Life, But Better, you don’t just read a story—you become the story. Take a quick personality quiz at the end of each chapter, and find out how you would act if you were confronted with the scene you just read. Are you star material? Or the queen of romance? What will you learn about yourself?
Crystal Velasquez is the author of the books based on the PBS series Maya and Miguel, but this is her first book for older readers. She lives, writes, and obsessively takes personality quizzes in New York City, where she works as a managing editor
for Ballantine Books.
