Blog Tour: Book Line Interview with Sharks & Boys

As part of Teen Book Scene's blog tour for Sharks & Boys, author Kristen Tracy has decided to answer her interview questions a little differently -- she's answering by using lines from the book.


What is the easiest way to describe Sharks and Boys to readers?
“We’re sunburned. We’re dehydrated. We’re starving. We’re screwed.”

Where did the inspiration for the story come from?

If you could be a super hero, who would you be?
“A torpedo?”

Do you have a favorite food?
“I can’t believe that nobody grabbed any chips. We had, like, eight bags of Doritos.”

Are there any quotes that inspire you?
“Wick started talking about how we seemed to be in each other’s orbits: biology, swim class, twin studies. And I loved that idea. I wanted to think of myself as a moon or maybe a planet being drawn to another moon. Like the path I was on with Wick was more significant than anything on earth; it was celestial.”

Besides writing, what are other things that you enjoy doing?
“I want to try cocaine,” Dale says.

How do you think authors should respond to bad reviews?
“Water enters my ears and I can’t hear anything.”
