In Fan Girl, there are so many references to
social media, as it’s such a big part of the 2015 teen's life. And you’re
pretty active as well, but it looks like you’ve left your Tumblr for greener
I used to be really into Tumblr, because you could just kind
of re-blog stuff. Now I check Twitter -- but I'm so bad at it -- and I’m on
Instagram. When I eat something that is very pretty, I'll let the world know.
Besides that, I do a lot of scrolling, but I don't post too often.
Yes, we’ve noticed your #foodporn Instagrams. They’re
amazing. Do you have a favorite restaurant in L.A., or a favorite dish?
It’s so hard to pick favorite restaurants and dishes!
There's a place called Sapp Coffee Shop that has really good jade noodles. That
just sprung to mind. I love Sqirl, because I love going there with my friends.
It's really fun. Then we get ice cream a lot. I mean that's the thing that I
really like. I once drove [east of L.A.] to Alta Dena for gelato. That's kind
of my real obsession, and it was delicious. I think that’s still in L.A.
You’re definitely more into your food than you are into
selfies. In Fan Girl, there's this great line about the art
to taking a selfie. What’s your take on that?
I'm always approaching it differently. I don't take many
selfies without other friends. It's always been group shots or just sending
funny faces to people. That's my selfie game.
