#BIR2010: Book Giveaway The Unwritten Rule or Grace by Elizabeth Scott + Interview

Welcome Author Elizabeth Scott!


Hey there, I’m Elizabeth. I write young adult novels. I live just outside Washington DC with my husband and dog, and am unable to pass a bookstore without stopping and going inside.

All right, and I can’t leave without buying at least one book.

Usually two. (Or more!)


If you could travel in a Time Machine would you go back to the past or into the future?
I’m actually really happy where I am! 🙂

If you were stranded on a desert island what 3 things would you want with you?
My husband, my dog, and a way for me to get all the books I wanted…

If you were a superhero what would your name be?

If you could have any superpower what would you choose?
Mind-reading–but only for certain people 🙂

What is your favorite thing to eat for breakfast?
Um…okay. I’ll be honest. Fritos. (I know! But they’re soooo good!)

Is there anything you need in order to write?
Just a place to sit (although I’ve never tried writing standing up before) and of course, something to write on–and with!

What is on your mousepad?
I actually don’t have a mousepad!

You have won one million dollars what is the first thing that you would buy?
Books, LOL!

If someone wrote a book about your life, what would the title be?
Yes, She Is THAT Boring

What is your guilty pleasure?
Eating cake for dinner

What TV show/movie/book do you watch/read that you’d be embarrassed to admit?
I fully embrace my TV love–but I don’t always tell people I have a soft spot for several seasons of 3rd Rock From The Son (but then, it’s John Lithgow! And Joseph Gordon-Levitt! And those other two!)

Of course, now I have shared that 🙂

Book Summary (from goodreads.com):
He’s looking at me like—well, like he wants to look at me.
Like he likes what hes sees, and he’s smiling and hiw eyes are so blue, even in the faint flow of the porch light they shine, and I nod dumbly, blindly, and then grope for the door handle, telling myself to look away and yet not able to do it.
“Sara,” he says, softly, almost hesitantly, and my heart slam-bangs, beating hard, and this is what it’s like to want someone you can’t have. To want someone you shouldn’t even be looking at.

Book Summary (from goodreads.com):
A fable of a terrifying near future by critically acclaimed author Elizabeth Scott.

Grace was raised to be an Angel, a herald of death by suicide bomb. But she refuses to die for the cause, and now Grace is on the run, daring to dream of freedom. In search of a border she may never reach, she travels among malevolent soldiers on a decrepit train crawling through the desert. Accompanied by the mysterious Kerr, Grace struggles to be invisible, but the fear of discovery looms large as she recalls the history and events that delivered her uncertain fate.

Told in spare, powerful prose, this tale of a dystopian near future will haunt readers long after they’ve reached the final page.
