His answer surprised us. Sadie is a fantastic narrator. I fear the days of skulking down alleys and stairways with flashlights are nearly gone.
Your personal theme song. I understand that almost every book on the planet has some profanity, but this seemed overboard and unnecessary. She is uncompromising and tough, but not necessarily a bully, although sometimes she can come off that way, particularly with Joe.
I highly reccommend [sic] this book. I actually really started liking this story as a teen. Thanks once again to Meg for answering all our questions, and to Charisse at Scholastic for setting this interview up for us. I felt so invested in these characters that I loved every minute of this book.
The way the author explain Sadie rush for racing also pulled me in. Dumped with relatives in a small Minnesota town for the summer, Sadie Lester is relying on her mountain bike to save her from total boredom.
I liked how the author took the setting of Minnesota instead of California or a place that is well known. Like Sadie, he has been sent to live with relatives for the summer.
I did a ton of research on the New England setting my mom spends ever summer on Little Deer Isle, and the book was set on a facsimile of that island. At my age, the ability to pay my rent trumps artistic integrity.
I really appreciated that. When I see a ghost, the first thing that comes to mind is: I could totally relate. But quiet loner Jay Nazarro does more than that--he decides to find out who did it. Rebecca Fjelland Davis has taken a dull summer out in the boons and made it a life-changing experience for three teenagers.
One of the chief reasons that I like Sadie so much is because she is a laid back, take-people-as-they-are person. Did you start this novel with a mystery in mind, and did you know the nature of the crime.
How has that experience affected your writing — of this book, or of your writing in general. All three characters have an absolute passion for mountain biking and all three also shoulder tough burdens.
You get the idea from the beginning that Allie in particular comes from a sad and troubled background, but I had no clue just how bad it was until the end when the cause for her disappearance is revealed. And be sure to enter our giveaway at the end of this interview.
I really enjoyed this book. I think focusing a bit less on the click-by-click methodology and more on the motivation behind the hacking can bring you to some interesting places. It kept me guessing until the very end.
Surely he had valuable insights into the craft of mystery writing. James, so many others. Davis' characters are distinct, her writing simple, vivid and descriptive, the plot fast-paced, and the mystery of Allie keeps your attention. After publishing three contemporary YA novels, what made him turn to mystery.
If this is what all realistic fiction is like, well please let me say that I'm more than happy to go find some more. Young adults are endlessly fascinating, exuberant, dark, brilliant, passionate. Popping off with that Glock nine was to be perfectly honest an absolute thrill, but the most interesting segment for me was computer crime.
The reasons for this actually have nothing to do with the oil spill but with something that happens in a later book in the series. Did you read them as a teen.
When Nicole Castro, the most beautiful girl in her wealthy New Jersey high school, is splashed with acid on the left side of her perfect face, the whole world takes notice.
I loved how this wasn't your normal easy-going book that's predictable. But the deeper he digs, the more danger he's in--and the more he falls for Nicole. The two teens have an authentic rapport. Observant writing. Rebecca Fjelland Davis’s vivid portrait of a rural Minnesota town is especially memorable, including details such as a “trailer park cemetery” and Sadie’s uncles accidentally destroying a neighbor’s car with a cannonball.
Thanks, everybody, who came! It was fun. Here are some amazing and brilliant young women who are members of a book club at Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic School in Minnetonka.
