MissSusie asked E. Lockhart:

I finished We Were Liars yesterday and am still thinking about it and think I will for a long time..Have you thought at all about a film version? I think Edward Herrmann should play Grandad!I felt at times , it is written like poetry, as a diary and as just rambling but beauty throughout. What made you decide to format the book this way?

E. Lockhart Film versions are far out of an author's control -- but thank you. As for the form, it really is just what came out when I wrote. I like the free verse format as it allows me to control the pacing of certain scenes.
