Tell us about your story
I don’t even know where to start! Let’s just say, I have some pretty freaky dreams… and most of them are real.
What part do you play in it?
I’m the protagonist, or should I say ‘protagonists’? I’ve been around a few times, and these lives haven’t all been fun. Actually, most of them kind of suck.
Is it scary or a love story?
It’s a little of both.
Have you heard any good gossip lately?
No, I haven’t really been paying attention. Lack of sleep is making me into a zombie.
If you could be anything you want to be, what would you be?
Anyone but me.
It’s getting a little complicated at the moment.
Do you have a boyfriend/girlfriend?
Yes, but I’m planning on breaking up. I’m not good with the whole relationship thing. Plus, there’s this guy who just showed up in town. He kind of creeps me out, but there’s something about him.
What would they think about the change?
If you’re talking my relationship status, he’s not going to take it well. If you’re talking about the dreams and stuff, he has no idea and that’s the way I want it. It’s too hard to explain.
Who is the scariest person in your story?
Ted. Like I said, he’s really hot and he seems to like me, but he really weirds me out. For some reason, I think about those dreams and all the horrible things I see in them every time I get near him.
Who is the happiest?
Probably Sloane, because he’s blissfully unaware of the fact he’s about to be dumped.
What’s your author like?
She’s cool enough. She really puts me through it, though.
Do you think she portrayed your part well?
Yeah, I think so. It’s not easy to be in my head sometimes, so I give her points for sticking it out with me.
Does she sleep as much as Jena does?
I’m not sure, but I know she sleeps more than I do. Well, except for those nights I wouldn’t shut up about my story—she was not very happy with me about that.
