Today I’m proud to host Lissa Price, author of STARTERS, a new dystopian YA novel. Starters is available now. After reading the premise, it’s definitely going on my to-be-read list.
Lissa was kind enough to answer my questions about what she would do in various bounty hunting situations. Welcome, Lissa.
First, tell us what your book is about.
In the future desperate teens rent out their bodies to seniors so they
can be young again temporarily. But one senior plans to do more than
party. She plans to murder someone.
Now, for the bounty hunter questions. You’ve skipped bail, and a bounty hunter is looking for you. What
three things do you bring with you?
A Diet Coke, my iPad, and a SuperTruffle.
Where does the bounty hunter find you?
At my favorite beach.
Now you’re the bounty hunter. When three things do you bring with you
while tracking your skip?
My iPad, my phone, and night-vision glasses.
You’ve found your skip, right where you thought they would be.
Describe your location and approach.
They’re hiding in an abandoned office building, on the roof. I call in
a helicopter assist (a favor owed me). I snab the skip, cuff him, and
grab the ladder to climb into the copter.
You’ve just caught a skip, and you’re surprised to find them
attractive. What three things make them irresistible to you?
He’s funny, smart and knows Shakespeare.
