I just watched this book trailer for Firecracker by David Iserson and discovered that it’s essentially the same book trailer as David Levithan’s trailer for Every Day. The difference is that this trailer features actors instead of authors. I’m not sure exactly how I feel about the mimicry, but I do like the trailer. Just like I did with the Every Day trailer, I enjoyed hearing broken up parts of this book. What do you think of the mimicry and the trailer? It released on May 16th, so I might have to give it a try this summer.
Summary (From Goodreads):
Being Astrid Krieger is absolutely all it’s cracked up to be.
She lives in a rocket ship in the backyard of her parents’ estate.
She was kicked out of the elite Bristol Academy and she’s intent on her own special kind of revenge to whomever betrayed her.
She only loves her grandfather, an incredibly rich politician who makes his money building nuclear warheads.
It’s all good until…
“We think you should go to the public school,” Dad said.
This was just a horrible, mean thing to say. Just hearing the words “public school” out loud made my mouth taste like urine (which, not coincidentally, is exactly how the public school smells).
Will Astrid finally meet her match in the form of public school? Will she find out who betrayed her and got her expelled from Bristol? Is Noah, the sweet and awkward boy she just met, hiding something?
Find out in this hilarious tragicomedy from New Girl and SNL writer David Iserson!
