Character Interview: Penny from Frost by Wendy Delsol - Blog Tour & A Giveaway

Hi Penny! Thanks for being here. How are you doing today?
Doing great today. Life is good.
What is your favorite part about growing up in a small town? 

The people, of course. We know one another, take care of one another. I like the comfort of having known most of my classmates since elementary school. There’s a hometown pride we all feel. Well, I do, anyway.

Any plans for after high school?
Having just gushed about small-town life, it may seem odd to hear that I don’t know if I’ll stay here after high school. I do want to go away for college; I’m thinking University of Minnesota. It’s far enough away that I’ll have a real college experience but close enough that I can come home for holidays and the odd weekend here and there. There’s only me and my grandmother so I don’t want to abandon her completely. As to studies, I’m thinking business. Corporate world here I come.

How do you enjoy spending your spare time?
What spare time? I’m the assistant editor of the school paper. I’m currently organizing a food drive. I sing in the school choir. I’m on the homecoming and prom committees. Oh, and I’m a straight-A student. Time allowing, I like movies, reading, and cross country skiing come winter.

What is your favorite movie?
 The Back-up Plan with Jennifer Lopez is hysterical. The part where they all fall over in the conga line even had my grandmother laughing. And that’s saying something.

How about your favorite book?
I was a big Harry Potter fan when I was younger. More than one person has told me I remind them of Hermione. Must be the hair. Or the work ethic.
Recently, I’d have to say The Hunger Games. I’m Team Peeta, by the way.

What would you consider your go to comfort food?
Chocolate chip cookies. I love to bake and have organized so many bake sales that I know the recipe by heart. My secret ingredient is a pinch of nutmeg.

What would you say is your biggest pet peeve?
Mean girls. We have a few of those in our school. I’d guess every school has one or two. I don’t get it. Why go out of your way to be nasty? My theory is that they suffer from low self esteem themselves. When I shared this with my friend, Kat, she didn’t buy it. She thinks mean people mate with other mean people so that we’ve now got this interbred super-mean hybrid.

Anything else you would like to share?
Having mentioned my friend, Kat, above, it has me thinking: I am SO glad she moved here. She has this kind of snarky way of looking at things, and at first I wasn’t too sure about her. But, now, I couldn’t imagine Norse Falls High without her or her unique fashion sense. Not that I’m going to be getting myself a beret anytime soon, but somehow she pulls it off. 

It was great getting to know you better! Thanks, Penny!
