The Rebel Wore Pink

July 16th, 2009 • Kate

thumb_pinkWhile we in the US of A have to wait another year for Lili Wilkinson‘s novel Pink, early copies have been sighted in Australia, and early reviews are up. A few quotes:

Pink is fabulous because it’s the antithesis of what it sounds like. There’s nothing soft, fluffy or sweet about this novel. Wilkinson slices, dices and shreds her way through dialogue to get to the real heart of the matter…and the characters.

And:

This one is for the kids that just aren’t sure—about their sexuality, their friends or themselves. Pink successfully turns the traditional theme of fitting in upside-down, while reinforcing the importance of being true to one’s self—if you can figure out who you are. […] I loved the idea of the rebel lesbian girl who wants to try living in the mainstream.

So, what color do you wear to convey your personality? I mean, purple may be my signature color, but I have a deep attachment to black as well, signaling my continuing connection to my NYC roots.

    Brown. I love brown.

  2. Jessie Harrell Says:

    I like to wear white. It’s crisp, clean and classic. Plus it makes me look tan. 🙂

  3. Carrie Harris Says:

    I wear a ridiculous amount of blue, which is odd because it's not even my favorite color.

  4. Julia Says:

    Lately it's been green. Maybe because I'd like to be rolling in greenbacks! lol!

  5. Amy Says:

    Red is totally my signature color. The car salesguy at the VW dealer even laughed at me when I picked out a car that matched my outfit.

  6. TereLiz Says:

    Turquoise. For some reason it makes me happy, feel uplifted and sparks creativity (or so I keep trying to convince myself).

  7. Mandy Says:

    I wear pink because it drives the guys at work crazy. They hate it when I wear "girl colors". But that's what happens when you work in a branch that has twenty four guys and me.
