Today I am happy to be a part of The Teen Book Scene's (Click link for other reviews and interviews) tour for Where I Belong by Gwendolyn Heasley. I had the pleasure of interviewing one of the main characters, Bubby.
Kate: First off, tell me a little about yourself. What do you love about football?
Bubby: I love how it’s the one thing that brings our town together. People in the Spoke disagree about everything but their love for the Mockingbirds. It’s much more than just a game for us.
Kate: What is your favorite memory of Broken Spoke?
Bubby: Spoiler Alert: Winning State. I suppose I should say meeting Corrinne, but we didn’t make the best first impressions on each other.
Kate: What did you think of Corrine when you first met?
Bubby: Her accent. All I could hear is accent. But I also noticed that she was very pretty even if she looked way too made up for the first day of school.
Kate: What is your history with Rider?
Bubby: I have no history with that hipster wannabee. I detest his music, and I hate how he plays at every party dance whatever just because the girls think he’s cute.
Kate: Where do you want to see yourself in the future?
Bubby: I’d like to play ball at UT and get a good education, but I’d also like to end up back in the Spoke. I am proud to be from here.
Thanks Bubby for the interview!!
From Goodreads. Corrinne Corcoran’s upscale Manhattan life is perfectly on track—until her father announces he’s been laid off and she’s shipped off to Broken Spoke, Texas, to live with her grandparents. All alone in a big public school and forced to take a job shoveling manure, Corrinne is determined to get back to the glamorous life she’s supposed to be living. But as she grudgingly adjusts—making new friends and finding romance along the way—this city girl begins to realize that life without credit cards and shopping sprees may not be as bad as it seems....
