This Is Who I Am Now | The Square Root of Summer Blog Tour

Happy release day to The Square Root of Summer by Harriet Reuter Hapgood! As part of the blog tour for this exciting new YA release, Macmillan asked me to answer a few questions about myself. Actually, I answered the same questions a few months back and again a few days ago. 

It's all in an effort to see how much life can change in a short time. Some of my answers did, and some of them didn't. So on to the questions...

What Brings You The Most Joy In Life?
THEN:  My family & friends
NOW:  My family & friends

What Are You Reading?
THEN: The Smell of Other People's Houses
NOW: NIL on Fire

What Is Something  You’re Really Looking Forward To?
THEN:  My 2nd anniversary.
NOW:  Buying a new house.

What Is One Thing That’s Worrying You?
THEN:  Preparing my house to sell.
NOW: Balancing work, blogging and all my other pursuits
as the busy summer season kicks off.

What Is Something That You Always Have With You?
THEN:  Music. I can't go a day without it.
NOW: Still music, but recently two phones and
a notebook since my job demands it. 

What Is Something That You Wish You Could Change?
THEN:  My organizational skills.
You know what they say - Messy desk, organized mind!
NOW: My bookshelf space because I need more of it.
(I can't get a new house fast enough!)

This is what it means to love someone. This is what it means to grieve someone. It's a little bit like a black hole. It's a little bit like infinity.

Gottie H. Oppenheimer is losing time. Literally. When the fabric of the universe around her seaside town begins to fray, she's hurtled through wormholes to her past:

To last summer, when her grandfather Grey died. To the afternoon she fell in love with Jason, who wouldn't even hold her hand at the funeral. To the day her best friend Thomas moved away and left her behind with a scar on her hand and a black hole in her memory.

Although Grey is still gone, Jason and Thomas are back, and Gottie's past, present, and future are about to collide—and someone's heart is about to be broken.

Harriet Reuter Hapgood is a freelance journalist, the author of The Square Root of Summer, and hater of writing in the third person.
