Blog Tour: The Education of Bet by Lauren Baratz-Logsted

The Education of Bet
To celebrate this week's release of Lauren Baratz-Logsted's most recent novel, The Education of Bet, a historical novel for young adults, she is embarking on a one question interview tour. I loved The Education of Bet (review coming tomorrow), which is the story of a sixteen-year-old girl in Victorian England who impersonates a boy in order to receive a proper education. I'm thrilled to welcome Lauren today! 


My one question:
Bet loves to read. Do you share her taste in reading? If not, why did you choose to her love books you don't love?
Well, I can't say I've ever had to translate a vulgus as she does, but Bet loves her Shakespeare - it's reading Shakespeare to Will's great-uncle and learning to do a range of accents that convinces her she can impersonate a boy's voice - and I love my Shakespeare too. Bet really is a sponge when it comes to books and I'm the same. I read a bit of everything. In fact, it's a good thing books aren't really drugs - although at times they seem so! - because if they were I'd be dead by now.


Want more of the one question blog tour?

Earlier this week, Vasilly asked: What is one of your favorite passages from a book or short story? 

 Tomorrow, 
Angie asks: If you could spend 24 hours with one fictional character, which character would you pick and what would you do?
