On Tuesday, Cassandra Clare’s City of Heavenly Fire tour stopped in Boston, where she was joined by fellow best-selling author Jodi Picoult. When The Boston Globe spoke to Picoult about joining Clare, she couldn’t help but fangirl over Cassie and The Mortal Instruments.

Best-selling author Jodi Picoult is a fangirl when it comes to Cassandra Clare’s “Mortal Instruments” series. Picoult, the New Hampshire author known for novels such as “My Sister’s Keeper” and “TheStoryteller,” moderated the Wellesley Books event Tuesday night celebrating the release of the final book in Clare’s series, “City of Heavenly Fire.” She also dressed like Clare’s characters, wearing all black and marking her arms with runes to look like Jace and Clary, the stars of Clare’s mega-popular young adult fantasy novels. Picoult told the packed auditorium at Wellesley Middle School that she and her son, Kyle, started a book club together and wound up reading Clare’s “Mortal Instruments” series. After starting with “City of Bones” (which became a 2013 movie starring Lily Collins), they couldn’t stop. Picoult was giddy to meet Clare for the first time. “She’s lovely, she’s smart, she’s funny,” she said, beaming.

City of Heavenly Fire is now available. The final stop of Clare’s U.S. City of Heavenly Fire tour hits Philadelphia on Friday. Clare will also make an appearance at BookExpo America on Saturday, where she will sign copies of The Shadowhunter’s Codex and The Iron Trial, with co-author Holly Black.
