Everything Mattie Guest Post by Jill Hathaway + Giveaway

           What if a killer took control of you? 

Vee Bell’s gift (or curse) of “sliding”—slipping into the mind of another person and experiencing life, briefly, through his or her eyes—has been somewhat under control since she unwillingly witnessed the horrific deaths of her classmates six months ago.

But just as things are getting back to normal, Vee has a very bizarre experience: she loses consciousness and finds herself in a deserted area, at the edge of a cliff, with the broken body of the boy who took advantage of her on the rocks below.

As Vee finds herself in stranger and stranger situations with no memory of getting there, she begins to suspect that someone she knows has the ability to slide—and that this “slider” is using Vee to exact revenge on his or her enemies.

Everything Mattie (A Polyvore Collage):

You know, younger sisters have it rough. They’re always living in the shadows of their older siblings. All the teachers expect you to live up to (or down to) the image your sibs have created. You always have to wear hand-me-downs. By the time it's your sixteenth birthday, no one really cares anymore. It’s a rarity to get something totally to yourself.

That’s why I feel for Mattie, Vee’s younger sister. A cheerleader (just as Vee used to be), she runs with the crowd Vee left behind… or maybe outgrew. I made Mattie’s stuffed animal in SLIDE a sheep for a reason. She was kind of a follower.

But after the events of SLIDE, she’s really come into her own, making new friends and trying new things. I’m… proud of her… in a weird way. If that makes any sense.

Anyway, check out IMPOSTOR (sequel to SLIDE) to catch up with Mattie.

Jill Hathaway earned her BA in English Education from the University of Northern Iowa and her MA in Literature from Iowa State University, she teaches high school English and dual credit courses for Des Moines Area Community College.

SLIDE, her debut, was released from Balzer + Bray/HarperCollins in March 2012. The sequel, IMPOSTOR, will be out in March 2013. She is working on two additional books to be released in 2014 and 2015 (not related to the SLIDE series).

Jill lives in the Des Moines area with her husband and two young children.
