Interview and Giveaway with Tamra from Vanish by Sophie Jordan

I love, love, love this series!!!  LOVE!!  So, I'm really excited to share with you this interview with Tamra, Jacinda's twin sister.  I hope that if you haven't picked up this series yet, you will immediately!  Trust me, it's worth it!

Tamra, I know this has been a crazy, stressful, and difficult time for you. Thank you so much for taking some time to talk to us.

Thanks for being so understanding. I appreciate you wanting to hear my side of things.

What was the hardest thing for you, growing up with Draki, but never being one yourself?

You just said it … growing up and being different from everyone else. Even worse than that is that everyone makes certain you’re achingly aware of that fact each and every day. And the knowledge that it will never get better, never improve. Some days it took everything I had to just get out of bed.

Did you resent your sister for all the attention she received?

I did, even though I tried really hard not to. Which ended up only making me feel worse. I don’t want to resent her. I love her.

How do you feel about your sister, Jacinda's, relationship with the human, Will?

It’s not very wise, and rather selfish. She’s not just risking herself to be with him. She’s risking all of us, but … I don’t know. He seems all right. Obviously not like other hunters. It might be selfish of me to say, but at least she’s not with Cassian. That would be hard for me to stand by and watch.

Now that you're returning to the Draki village, what do you think life will be like for you?

So much is changed … and changing still. It’s hard to wrap my head around it.

I know that even if you're a little scared, you must be a little excited also. Especially because you get to see Cassian again. What is it about him that you are so drawn to?

I am … but I’m also tired of watching him fawn over Jacinda. He doesn’t feel that way about me, and I don’t’ want to make a fool of myself over him. I mean … if he gave me the slightest indication that he was interested … well … then, maybe I could let myself hope.

What do you see for yourself in the future? What do you want to do with your life?

Just to be somewhere I belong. Where I feel comfortable in my own skin. Isn’t that what we all want?

Thanks so much for talking to us! I can't wait to hear what new adventures you and your family have next!

Thanks for having me and listening to what I have to say.
