Welcome to the AFTER THE END blog tour!
Amy's Truth or Dare This is one of Amy's special author-hosted Truth or Dare stops. (The truth-or-dare theme is particularly relevant to AFTER THE END, since Juneau's oracle has said she has to tell the truth or she won't find her clan.) I opted for "dare," giving Amy the mission to leave a love note at a major tourist site in Paris, with a time and place for potential rendez-vous. For various reasons (timing, having her kids along, etc.) she had to modify the dare, and this is what she came up with: note This is my note - simple and direct: "I think you are very handsome (or pretty)." note2And here is the drop-off point: a park bench in Place des Vosges on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. The man on the other side of the bench had been sitting there forever, and didn't even notice me drop off the note (with pebble on top - it was windy). I left the note and then went to hide out on a park bench across from it, camera ready. And waited. And waited some more. And then got my daughter to lurk with the camera for a while. And NO ONE came up to read the note. Except, finally... note3my 8-year old son, who was dying of curiosity to know what the note said. He came away with a smile on his face, as if he couldn't help but believe that I hadn't planned whole thing specifically for him just because he was SO DARN HANDSOME. I had so much fun with Courtney's dare, though, that I am determined to try it again. Another place. Another time. Another love letter. It will happen.   And now, on to the juicy info about AFTER THE END + prizes!
About the Book
By: Amy Plum, Published by: Harper Teen, hitting shelves on May 6, 2014 Pre-Order from: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Indiebound Find out more about the book
World War III has left the world ravaged by nuclear radiation. A lucky few escaped to the Alaskan wilderness.
They′e survived for the last thirty years by living off the land, being one with nature, and hiding from whoever else might still be out there.
At least, this is what Juneau has been told her entire life.
When Juneau returns from a hunting trip to discover that everyone in her clan has vanished, she sets off to find them. Leaving the boundaries of their land for the very first time, she learns something horrifying: There never was a war. Cities were never destroyed. The world is intact.
Everything was a lie.
Now Juneau is adrift in a modern-day world she never knew existed. But while she′s trying to find a way to rescue her friends and family, someone else is looking for her. Someone who knows the extraordinary truth about the secrets of her past.   About Amy Plum
