As part of THE SQUARE ROOT OF SUMMER blog tour, Fierce Reads asked us some questions that we were to answer once in Feb/March, then again in May to see how our lives have changed in just a few short months. This was such a fun idea, and I think I'm going to do this once a year, just to see how my answers change.
This Is Who I Am Now
· What Brings You The Most Joy In Life?
o Feb/March 2016: When my kids come in, in the morning, and jump on me and say good morning. Then don’t want to stop hugging me.
o May 2016: Well I just spent a week in Florida at Harry Potter world (Universal) and Disney. I can’t lie, that brought me a LOT of joy
· What Are You Reading?
o Feb/March 2016: I’m reading Reign of Shadows & listening to A Gathering of Shadows (I just realized the similar titles, hmmm…)
o May 2016: I’m reading The Crown’s Game & listening to Six of Crows
· What Is Something You’re Really Looking Forward To?
o Feb/March 2016: SUMMER!!
o May 2016: BEA in Chicago! It’s coming up in a week!!
· What Is One Thing That’s Worrying You?
o Feb/March 2016: That Donald Trump will become president.
o May 2016: That Donald Trump will become president.
· What Is Something That You Always Have With You?
o Feb/March 2016: My audiobook (on my iPhone)
o May 2016: A book, just in case I have a spare moment!
· What Is Something That You Wish You Could Change?
o Feb/March 2016: Something that’s been weighing on me lately is the contempt people have for each other with all the political stuff going on. I wish I could get people to see that their similarities far outweigh their differences, and that in the end, we all want what’s best for our country and our loved ones. So I guess I wish I could change people’s attitude and behavior toward each other.
o May 2016: Where I live. I’m ready to move somewhere warmer!

This is what it means to love someone. This is what it means to grieve someone. It's a little bit like a black hole. It's a little bit like infinity.
Gottie H. Oppenheimer is losing time. Literally. When the fabric of the universe around her seaside town begins to fray, she's hurtled through wormholes to her past:
To last summer, when her grandfather Grey died. To the afternoon she fell in love with Jason, who wouldn't even hold her hand at the funeral. To the day her best friend Thomas moved away and left her behind with a scar on her hand and a black hole in her memory.
Although Grey is still gone, Jason and Thomas are back, and Gottie's past, present, and future are about to collide―and someone's heart is about to be broken.
With time travel, quantum physics, and sweeping romance, The Square Root of Summer is an exponentially enthralling story about love, loss, and trying to figure it all out, from stunning debut YA voice, Harriet Reuter Hapgood.
