Anna Levine, author of Freefall, is here today courtesy of the Teen Book Scene blog tour. Her book has a unique premise, with the main character joining the Israeli army. It sounds like a fabulous read. For more information about Anna Levine, and her works, you can visit her website here. You can also follow along with the rest of the tour here.
What is your favourite line from Freefall?
More of a favorite paragraph…but here’s the last line of it. “The thing is you never know how it’ll be until you step out and take the chance.” For Aggie, it’s taking her first step out of the plane, for the rest of us it’s understanding that we have to always try and challenge ourselves and not be afraid to take a chance.
What would you have done in Aggie's position, would you have been enthusiastic about having to join the army, and what area/position would you want to train in?
Like Aggie, I think I’d want to test myself and see if I can stand up to the physical, emotional and psychological demands that you need to be a soldier. The thing is, in Israel you don’t have a choice about joining the army. Because the country is surrounded by borders that need to be defended all eighteen-year olds have to do military service. But the army knows that not everyone is cut out for every position. Some of the soldiers work in schools, in hospitals, and as nature guides.
If Aggie had a theme song, what would it be, and why that song?
Right now I’d say “New Soul” by Yael Naim (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XgEfYGzojcA) but I might change my mind tomorrow.
What would the front page headline of a newspaper say about you?
Local Author Makes New York Times Best Seller List
What kind of tree would you describe yourself as, and why?
An orange tree. When I first came to Israel I worked on an agricultural farm (a kibbutz). I absolutely adore the smell of citrus flowers and though I was happy to leave kibbutz (I’m not made to be a farmer) whenever I catch a whiff of the citrus flowers I am infused with memories.
I love your answers, Anna! Thank you so much for being here today and answering these questions!
- I am a bibliophile and absolutely love reading. I tend to read a variety of books ranging from fantasy, urban fantasy, paranormal romance, thrillers, mystery, inspirational and regular fiction, to young adult. I'm willing to read anything at least once. If you have any questions or if you are an author or publisher and are interested in a review of your book, please feel free to email me at lostforwords.cl(at)gmail.com.
