Sarah Dessen / Melissa Walker Interview

Two great ladies brought together by their wonderful words and Chapel Hill.  I have heard so much about this place now that I am very keen to visit. 

What we now know about Along for the Ride

  • The protagonist is a little older than Sarah’s typical characters.
  • She’s suffering from insomnia since her parent’s marriage breakdown.
  • She’s moving in with her father, his new wife and their baby.
  • Adventures will take place while she’s taking in the night.
  • Set in Colby (same location as Keeping the Moon) and as such is a Lakeview-free zone.
  • There will be character crossovers from her other novels.
  • Will be released on June 11, 2009 at this stage.

Sarah mentions this interview on her blog.  I didn’t actually notice the nodding as I was trying to figure out the name of the protagonist, as the audio made it a little difficult.  Was it Auden?  Or Autumn?

If you are unfamiliar with Melissa Walker, I would definitely recommend that you check out her books from the Violet series and her blog as well.  She is a lovely lady who really takes the time to interact with her readers.  Melissa also has a youtube channel all of her own that you should definitely check out.  On a personal note Melissa took the time to  check out this site and responded to my emails.  She is an absolute gem.  Go and buy/borrow her books pronto!

    From what I understood, the protagonist’s name is Autumn. I’m glad you’re back!
