I Hate Everyone But Youwhich will be released September 19,is an epistolary novel of emails and texts between two best friends who separate for the first time for the first semester of college. What was your favorite part about writing this book?
I meant the process, with me by your side! Having finished, having written the book. I think my favorite is probably, we were writing it over the course of my birthday in June, and for my birthday I got a bunch of candy from a couple different people because my candy game is strong I guess?!
And then we got to eat the candy while we wrote the book, and that was definitely a highlight for me. Yeah, I think one of the best days was the candy day… Allison: We had multiple candy days!
That was so much candy! We had days and days of candy! Do you think the days we were eating candy were when the book is the most manic?

One of the characters is a reporter and one is a screenwriter, so some of the chapters are a script and some are fake articles. To circle back around to your question re: I definitely had really good ones, I definitely had really bad ones — you know, I felt very helpless, I felt very helped — and just showing the range of that in the book. Dunn has always wanted to write a book.
So, when she finally got the opportunity to do this, she saw it as not only the achievement of a long-time goal, but as an opportunity to do something important.
And to make a difference too, right? Because young people are so hungry for representation and content. At least, it did for me.
