Interview with Jessica Sankiewicz (Author of "If Only We") Blog Tour stop!

Next Page Reviews is a stop on the If Only We Blog Tour! Keep reading to find an exclusive author interview and more!

Synopsis:They say all it takes is one wrong move and you lose the game. One false step and you’re trapped. One slip-up in your choice of words and you ruin a friendship forever. That is what they say. They say I lost.

I do not believe them.

At the end of the summer after graduation, Adrienne wonders what happened to cause her life to be in ruins. She isn’t getting along with her mom, her stepsister isn’t talking to her, and, to top it off, the boy she’s been in love with doesn’t want anything to do with her. She believes the turning point was a choice she made at graduation. When she wakes up the next day, she has been transported back three months to that moment, the one where everything started to fall apart.

Adrienne realizes she has been given a second chance—and this time she doesn’t want to mess anything up. Reliving the entire summer, though, turns out to be a lot harder than she thought. As the same days and weeks go by, she starts to see how simple decisions can make a huge impact on the world around her. Despite knowing some of what lies ahead, there are some things she didn’t anticipate. She thought she knew what mistake led her to where she ended up the first time. She was wrong.

And by the time summer is over, she discovers what was really at stake.
Interview with Author Jessica Sankiewicz!
1: Favorite Guilty Pleasure: Kissing scenes in movies and on TV. I eagerly anticipate seeing my favorite couples kiss for the first time. I sometimes watch my favorites over and over again.
2. Movie/TV Show I can watch reruns of and never get tired of: This one is hard! I'm such a TV junkie... It's a toss-up between Castle and Veronica Mars. I adore Nathan Fillion, but I am pretty much like Veronica Mars.
3. Favorite Hobby: Crocheting. I'm not very good and have no clue how to read patterns but it is very soothing.
4. Adventurous Activity I Have Never Tried (But Want To!): Chase a tornado. I used to have an obsession with tornadoes when I was little and had this dream of becoming a storm chaser. I don't think I would want to be a storm chaser anymore, but it would be exciting to do it once.
5. Something Popular I Have Never Tried (But Also Want To!): Running. It seems like half the people I know either run or have been participating in marathons in the last year. I especially like the idea of doing The Color Run.
6. Biggest Fear: Big spiders. I can handle (and tolerate) the little ones just fine. I am willing to let the tiny ones live in corners as long as they keep to themselves.
7. If I could travel back in time, I would... go back to the 70s, see Billy Joel in concert, and meet him after the show because he's awesome.
8. Favorite Music: I listen to such a variety, but I often go through obsessions with techno and anything with amazing piano playing. The album currently in the CD player in my car is All's Well That Ends Well by Chiodos, an example of great piano playing.
9. Favorite snack to munch on while writing? M&Ms. I actually have a dispenser, which currently needs a refill.
10. If I had to describe my novel "If Only We" in less than 10 words, it would be... Never underestimate your impact on the lives of others.

Jessica is the 28-year-old author of IF ONLY WE, a YA contemporary. You can often find her either reading or marathon watching TV on DVD, her favorites being Castle and Veronica Mars. She frequently mismatches her clothes and giggles uncontrollably. She knows almost every Billy Joel song by heart. She collects books and toys, and she has an intense love of cats and lemurs. Currently in the midst of her quarter-life-crisis, she is still takin' names and getting very close to reaching an epiphany.
