Maddie – On the outside, Maddie is a cheerleader, popular, and cool. On the inside though, she’s a total comic book loving geek. Casting her, for me, was kind of easy. I knew I wanted someone who looked pretty put together, stylish and preppy, but with a totally let go personality. The entire time I was reading all I could do was picture Bridget Mendler.
Logan – You know how nerd is the new sexy? Yeah, Logan is definitely the reason why! He’s got floppy dark hair, blue eyes and GLASSES. Yes, glasses. And the entire time I was reading I kept picturing (you’re about to big time thank me for this) Penn Badgley. Not Gossip Girl Penn… not even sexy pin-up Penn. (Ha, Penn-up) I’m talking Woodchuck Todd Penn. Which is my FAVORITE. Sure, he looks pretty old… but whatever.
Martha – Not really a main character in the book, but definitely an important one! Logan’s mom, who was a former cheerleader, is kind of epically awesome as far as moms go. She totally comes through for Maddie in a bind and I seriously SERIOUSLY loved her. Kelly Preston, who once played a super hero mom in Sky High, made me think about Martha.
