S.R. Johannes is here today with a character this or that list for Grace courtesy of the Teen Book Scene blog tour for her new release, Untraceable. Thank you for being here today, S.R.! You can follow along with the tour here, or by clicking through the banner. Enjoy!Lipstick or Lip gloss? I won’t wear much makeup but if I had to choose I would say lip-gloss because it doesn’t get on your teeth.
Spring or Fall? Any season outdoors in the Smokies is beautiful. But if I had to choose, I would say fall. I love when it is crisp and cool. When I get to wear jackets and boots.
Art or Music? Music. I like in a small town so I don’t see much art. Unless you count Tommy’s wooden carvings.
Country or City? If the woods count as “country”, I say country. I am definitely not a city girl. Though I would like to visit one someday.
Guy friends or Girl friends? Do animals count? They aren’t as dramatic and don’t need much.
Music or solitude? Solitude. I don’t mind being alone. Thinking about things. I can’t think with noise. Probably why I like the woods so much.
Roughing it with a tent, or Cabin? Tent definitely. With a tent, I can go anywhere. With a cabin you are limited to places you can get to with a car. That means there are people around and you get less privacy.
Bear or Mountain Lion? If you know about my book, anyone can guess this. Definitely bears. Black bears to be more specific. Though I do know Mountain Lions are also called panthers and pumas. And the black panther is very endangered so I’d like to get close to one someday.
Rely on oneself, or on others? The only person you can always rely on 100% of the time is yourself.
Daredevil or more laidback? I don’t jump off cliffs if that is what you are asking. But I am not afraid to do what I need to do.
Books or magazines? Shelli would kill me if I didn’t say book.:) Though we only have a library in our town so I don’t get that many and magazines are a waste of trees in my opinion.
Mountains or Beaches? Mountains. It’s where I have lived my whole life
Coniferous or Deciduous? Coniferous. I love the smell of pine at the holidays.
Thank you for sharing your preferences with us, Grace! Thank you S.R. and Grace for being here today!
16-year-old Grace has lived in the Smokies all her life, patrolling with her forest ranger father who taught her about wildlife, tracking, and wilderness survival.
When her dad goes missing on a routine patrol, Grace refuses to believe he’s dead and fights the town authorities, tribal officials, and nature to find him.
One day, while out tracking clues, Grace is rescued from danger by Mo, a hot guy with an intoxicating accent and a secret. As her feelings between him and her ex-boyfriend get muddled, Grace travels deep into the wilderness to escape and find her father.
Along the way, Grace learns terrible secrets that sever relationships and lives. Soon she’s enmeshed in a web of conspiracy, deception, and murder. And it’s going to take a lot more than a compass and a motorcycle (named Lucifer) for this kick-butting heroine to save everything she loves.
