    What was one of the most memorable moments of An Interview with Rick Riordan?

    It's great to get to know your author, you should any time you can.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No. It's pretty run of the mill. I liked hearing how he really thinks like a teacher instead of an author.
