Earlier this week, I was lucky enough to interview Alexandra Adornetto about Halo, her New York Times best-selling book that's the start of a new trilogy. It's always exciting to meet authors, but it was a special treat to chat with Ally—she's only 18, after all.
Halo is Ally's fourth novel, although it's her first to be published in the United States. The story is about three angels who come down from heaven to battle the Dark Forces present on earth. Two of the angels are experienced, but one—Bethany—is just a teenager. Besides coping with her divine responsibility, she's also got to deal with prom, high school drama and Xavier Woods—a sweet and sexy mortal boy. You'll have to read the book yourself to find out if Bethany and Xavier can be together, but in the meantime, watch Part I of our interview with Ally. (You can watch Part II on BookPage's YouTube channel.)
Judging from the raves on Ally's Facebook page, it's clear that the Halo trilogy will be a huge success—teens love the book and enjoy talking to Ally. I even heard a rumor that at her recent signing at Nashville's Davis-Kidd Booksellers, fans were lobbying for the young author to come to Vanderbilt for college!
Enter to win a SIGNED copy of Halo by leaving the answer to this question: What kind of music does Ally like? (Hint: the answer is in Part II and on Ally's Facebook.) The contest will run through October 15.
*Note: This contest is open to everybody (all ages, non-U.S. residents, etc.).
