I’m super thrilled to have author Michelle Modesto here on the blog today as part of Celebrating Debutantes 2016 event. Michelle will be sharing to us her casting pick for her debut YA novel Revenge and the Wild. I haven’t got the chance to read the book yet but Precious is all high praises for it, which makes me more excited to pick up a copy.
To know more about Michelle Modesto and Revenge and the Wild, check the author’s bio and book’s description that follows after the guest post, as well as links where to find Michelle and where to buy copies of the book.
Also, don’t forget to check the giveaway at the bottom of this post for a chance to win a finished copy of Revenge and the Wild.
Here’s Michelle with her casting pick for Revenge and the Wild.
Westie, I think, was the hardest person to cast. It was between several different actresses, but in the end I thought Aubrey Peeples would make a pretty fierce Westie.
James wears many different masks so I thought Tye Sheridan would be best for that role.
With Alistair, it’s all about the eyes so I chose Nicholas Hoult
Costin is both creepy and charming so I thought Ezra Miller would be perfect for the part
And, for the brilliant and sophisticated Nigel, I chose Idris Elba
Thank you so much Michelle for sharing to us your casting pick. With all those brilliant actors/actresses I am now more intrigued with Revenge and the Wild. Looking forward meeting Westie, Costin and the rest of the characters.

Michelle Modesto is a writer, hockey fanatic, lover of most art forms, terrible cook and her social skills aren’t that great either. Her debut YA novel, REVENGE AND THE WILD comes out from Balzer + Bray/HarperCollins, early 2016.

ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: Revenge and the Wild
Author: Michelle Modesto
Publisher: Balzer + Bray / HarperCollins Children’s Books
Publication Date: February 02, 2016
Format: Hardcover, eBooks
The two-bit town of Rogue City is a lawless place, full of dark magic and saloon brawls, monsters and six-shooters. But it’s perfect for seventeen-year-old Westie, the notorious adopted daughter of local inventor Nigel Butler.
Westie was only a child when she lost her arm and her family to cannibals on the wagon trail. Nine years later, Westie may seem fearsome with her foul-mouthed tough exterior and the powerful mechanical arm built for her by Nigel, but the memory of her past still haunts her. She’s determined to make the killers pay for their crimes—and there’s nothing to stop her except her own reckless ways.
But Westie’s search ceases when a wealthy family comes to town looking to invest in Nigel’s latest invention, a machine that can harvest magic from gold—which Rogue City desperately needs as the magic wards that surround the city start to fail. There’s only one problem: the investors look exactly like the family who murdered Westie’s kin. With the help of Nigel’s handsome but scarred young assistant, Alistair, Westie sets out to prove their guilt. But if she’s not careful, her desire for revenge could cost her the family she has now.
This thrilling novel is a remarkable tale of danger and discovery, from debut author Michelle Modesto.
