by Amanda Panitch!

Thanks so much for taking the time and spending time with us here at Chapter by Chapter!

Thank you so much for having me!



Describe your book in 140 characters or less (like a Tweet)

Formerly-kidnapped teen Scarlett spent long enough in hell. She’s not going back.



What was your inspiration for writing this book?  Was it in a dream? A thought while taking a walk?

The setting came first. I spent two summers in high school working at Six Flags Great Adventure, and it struck me as the perfect location for a YA thriller: lots of teens in one place, with secret passages and drama galore.



Tell us about the main character(s).

Scarlett was kidnapped as a young girl and spent several years being held captive before she managed to escape. Because of that, she’s not the easiest person to like: she’s prickly; she’s secretive; and she’s not always sure how to interact with her peers like a “normal” person. All she wants is a relationship with her younger sister, Melody; they were close before she was kidnapped, but, ever since Scarlett came back, Melody’s refused to have anything to do with her.



Do you have a favorite quote or specific part in the book that you really love?

My favorite part is the very end.



Was there a specific part in the book that you had an especially difficult time writing?  If so, why?

I always have a hard time with beginnings. I rewrote the beginning of this book many times. While I like to sketch out the major plot points before I start writing, it takes me a while to find the main character’s voice and to figure out how the conflict is going to unwind early on.



What sort of projects do you have going on right now.  Any new books coming out?

Nothing I can talk about publicly, I’m afraid!



It was great having you on the blog today!  We hope you’ll decide to stop by again someday, and we wish you much success!!

Thank you again for having me – I’m glad I could stop by!

    The cover and the title grab your attention, and then you realize that the book sounds wonderful.

  2. I just finished Damage Done a few weeks ago and have been dying to read more by this author!! Also this book just sounds so “me”. I love the amusement park aspect. That was one of my fave parts in Vanishing Girls by Lauren Oliver and I’ve wanted to read another book set somewhere like that ever since!!

    I want to read this because it sounds intriguing! Love thrillers

  4. Susan T.

    I love a good thriller and this one sounds really great. I’m intrigued by characters who can’t remember what happened to them and have to figure it out along with the reader!

  5. Edye

    Because I love the cover and plot.

  6. Summer

    I haven’t read many thrillers and I really want to try more of them, this one sees like one might enjoy since it’s set at an amusement park and there’s family stuff with the sisters reconnecting.

  7. Diane Elizabeth

    I love a good thriller. After reading the blurb I’m really looking forward to reading this book. I need to find out what happens to Scarlett .
