Character Interview: Finn from All Our Yesterdays
Describe yourself in three words. What about Em?
I’m gorgeous, brilliant, and humble. She’s stubborn, aloof, and perfect.
You time travel! What’s the hardest thing about that?
Probably getting past the men with the machine guns. Once you’re in the past, though, the hardest thing is knowing that there are some things you can never change.
There are definitely not easy things ahead of you in All Our Yesterdays. What is the main thing that got you through everything?
Em, but if you tell her I said that, I’ll deny it.
What’s your favorite thing about Em?
Underneath everything, she’s got a really good heart. She loves completely and selflessly. In fact, I think that’s why she’s so hard on the outside. She needs that shell to protect her soft, squishy insides.
What’s it like to kiss Em?
Hey now, a gentleman doesn’t kiss and tell! (But it’s awesome. Mostly because of me, of course, but she’s not half-bad either.)
Can you give any hints for what’s next for you?
I have no idea. Hopefully something involving pizza.
What kind of cookie would you describe yourself as?
Peanut butter. A little nutty, a little sweet. Pretty much everyone likes it, but a few people are violently allergic.
Thank you, Finn, for the interview, and congrats, Cristin, on the release (and I need book two like, yesterday!).
Make sure you guys pick this one up - it is a disservice to yourself to not! I love it so incredibly much.
About the Book: "You have to kill him." Imprisoned in the heart of a secret military base, Em has nothing except the voice of the boy in the cell next door and the list of instructions she finds taped inside the drain.
Only Em can complete the final instruction. She’s tried everything to prevent the creation of a time machine that will tear the world apart. She holds the proof: a list she has never seen before, written in her own hand. Each failed attempt in the past has led her to the same terrible present—imprisoned and tortured by a sadistic man called the doctor while war rages outside.
Marina has loved her best friend James since the day he moved next door when they were children. A gorgeous, introverted science prodigy from one of America’s most famous families, James finally seems to be seeing Marina in a new way, too. But on one disastrous night, James’s life crumbles apart, and with it, Marina’s hopes for their future. Now someone is trying to kill him. Marina will protect James, no matter what. Even if it means opening her eyes to a truth so terrible that she may not survive it. At least not as the girl she once was.
All Our Yesterdays is a wrenching, brilliantly plotted story of fierce love, unthinkable sacrifice, and the infinite implications of our every choice.
