Blog Tour: Character Interview with Waverly (from Where I Belong)

Today at The Elliott Review, we have Waverly from Where I Belong by Gwendolyn Heasley as a guest.

Hey Waverly! What have you been up to lately?

Running for President of the Sophomore Class at Kent Boarding School. Studying for the PSATS.

What is your favorite memory with Corrinne?

Summer camp as kids.

What is your best quality as a person?

My dedication to excellence and perfection.

How do you deal with being fashionable AND smart?

Thinking the part is only half the battle. You need to look the part too. My whole life is strategic down to my charm bracelets.

Do you have any regrets at this point in life?

I wish I had been more open to learning about Corrinne's life in Broken Spoke.

What makes you get a crush on a guy?

I like power couples, so I look for someone who complements my future goals.

What was going through your mind when you first visited Corrinne in Texas?

Is this America? When's the next flight back?

What are your goals for the future?

Yale. First Female President. Then I am not sure what, I am still figuring out what I’ll do in my forties.

About Where I Belong:

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....

In this sparkling debut that flawlessly balances romance and humor, readers will grow to love sharp and sassy Corrinne as she goes on her totally reluctant but completely irresistible journey of self-discovery.
