Celine is not just a book about how a teen spends her weekend, but according to Professor Ahrens, it addresses problems that may trouble young people - such as senses of loss and abandonment. Professor Ahrens hopes youngsters can find their ways in literature as Celine found direction in her life.

In the second interview, Angie Man asks Professor Ahrens to recommend children books for parents and shares tips for reading with kids.
