An Interview with the author of Pay Attention, Carter Jones

“The idea for Pay Attention, Carter Jones actually came from an imagined image:  a butler standing on a stoop in the rain in front of a clearly American suburban home, on the first day of sixth grade for the oldest kiddo who lives there.  It's the incongruity that struck me about that idea:  the rain vs. the strictly formal butler, a butler for an American suburban home, a sixth grader who is just entering middle school versus the very formal butler—and on and on.” – Gary D. Schmidt
