Author Mark Shapiro says, "She's a true intellect whose songs have been guided by great authors and deep thinkers rather than the predictable template of current pop music. She's smart, creative, a true individual and only 17. Stories that are too good to be true but that ultimately are just that makes a biography of Lorde truly something special." Lorde is 17, she should wait a few more years.

Reyes then used her phone—against LAPD policy-- to collect two of the ugliest pictures.
