Today I've got an interview with a fifteen-year-old guy for you!  He's home schooled through a virtual school program, and spends a large majority of his time online.


Can you tell us a little about yourself?

I like reading a lot of different kinds of books, playing video games, and listening to music. 15 years old

What is it about a book that makes you pick it up when you're browsing the shelves of the library or book store?

If it has an interesting cover or is a certain genre, I’ll pick it up.

What's the best book you've read in the last 6 months?

Deathly Hallows

If you could ban one thing from all books, what would it be?

Wimpy characters.

What would you like to see more of in YA novels?

More well developed characters, someone with some strength.

What's your favorite part of a story: plot, characters, or setting?

The plot.

Do you feel like characters in YA books are representative of you?

Yeah.

What's a saying that you use frequently? One that you can't stand?

Don’t know.

What did you eat for lunch today?

2 quarter pounders.

If you could have any superpower, what would it be?

The ability to fly.


Last, but not least, if you could have a book written for you, what would it be about?

Sci-fi and adventure books.

Thank you for agreeing to interview with me, T!

What did I take away from this interview?  That teen guys are almost impossible to get more than a one-word answer out of!!  lol

A guy of few words. TFF.

My thoughts exactly, Holly. Love how this guy's answers were short and to the point whereas some of the girls gave much longer replies. It's a good demonstration of the difference between the way the sexes speak. (Look at all that rambling, I could have stopped at the first sentence.)

2 quarter pounders for lunch?? Why can't I have his metabolism? :)

Holly Dodson said...

Pam, I know, right?! And he's super skinny! *jealous*

Sophia, you make me laugh. So true. Guys and girls are so very different in so many ways!

He is very to the point, but it's good to get his perspective on things, too. And yes, I too would love to eat 2 quarter pounders and not gain a pound!
