Via Idle Hands, who snagged images from the book at the Book Expo of America 2014.  They also have a quote from Fox, who described her take on O’Neil as follows:

She grew up with a chip on her shoulder that eventually became a great asset, providing her the courage to become a little bit of a modern-day Joan of Arc.

And as a bonus, Arnett teased his favorite film from the movie which spoiler involved an 18-wheeler and a cliff!
