  15. Before reading the YA Muses article, I'm going to guess that what the two paintings have in common is...the face the woman is making? :P

  23. What 'The Scream' and Bernini's 'Pluto and Persephone' have in common is a scream; Persephone is about to be violated and her mouth is poised in an outcry.

  24. Oh, I can't wait to read it! I remember when Josh sold it, and I feel like I've been following along ever since then. Fingers crossed, but either way, I'm delighted it's now being released during my summer break. Perfect chance to read it straight away!
