Phoebe Pope and the Year of Four Blitz: Character Interview & Giveaway!

This book looks so awesome! I read an excerpt of it about a month ago, and I couldn't get it out of my mind. Next thing I know, I see this blitz, and I know that I have to sign up for it. I am so so so so excited!

The students of Green Lane Academy roam their halls unaware that below their manicured campus exists a prestigious school of an entirely different kind . . .

Sixteen-year-old Phoebe Pope has enrolled at the Campus Below: a spy academy for shape-shifters hidden deep beneath the grounds of a boarding school whose humans unknowingly protect it. There, thanks to a carefully planned schedule, she leads a double life: spy trainee Below and normal teenager Above.

As if two course loads, concealing a secret power she alone wields, and coping with her father’s recent death weren’t enough, Phoebe finds herself developing major feelings for actor and teen heartthrob Colten Chase, who attends the Campus Above and appears to be majoring in winning Phoebe’s heart. But when officials learn that Phoebe may be at the center of a startling prophecy, she becomes the target of shape-shifting assassins who will stop at nothing to suppress the truth.

Now Phoebe’s lessons about Shaper’s enemies and spycraft take on great importance as a menace stalks the campus, with Phoebe as its target. Meanwhile, what began as an unlikely relationship with Colten, quickly morphs into heartache when she suspects that something sinister lurks beneath this movie star’s glitter and fame. Suddenly, Phoebe’s caught in a mesh of lies, betrayals, and danger where she doesn’t know who to trust, and needs to rely on herself—and her secret power—to get to the  truth and to stay alive.


For When Words Just Aren't Enough

Okay, I seriously LOVE the music in the background for this trailer! It is so beautiful! Great job to whoever put that together. The effects that go with the text are pretty amazing too. I also really like that it's live action, but, I'm sorry, the fakeness of the lead actress's hair is really bothering me. All in all, though, this trailer is really, really good!

Character Interview

Phoebe Pope

(1) Tell us about your family. 
My mom's human and my father was a Shaper - a race of shape-shifter. That's what makes me a Hypha (half human, half shape-shifter). I'm an only child and I live with my maternal grandfather when I'm not at boarding school.

(2) What was the scariest moment of your life? 
The night I was tortured. . . I really don't want to talk about it right now. I hope that's okay. . . .

(3) What is your favorite meal? 
A hot bowl of soup – lentil or tomato - with a big salad and a scone on the side.

(4) Do you play any sports? 
I'm allergic to sports - well, at least the ones that involve moving balls.

(5) What do you do to unwind and relax? 
I take early morning photographs. I enjoy watching the rest of the world wake up.

(6) Who should play you in a film? 
I'm tall so I'm not sure. But if my story got turned into a major film, I'd love a newbie to play me. It would be awesome to have my movie be someone's big break!

(7) Do you have a favorite quote? 
"Be yourself; everyone else is already taken." - Oscar Wilde

Phoebe, you sound pretty cool! I can't wait to get to know you more!

Nya Jade is a singer-songwriter and author based in San Francisco. Her music videos have aired on the VH1, BET, and MTV networks. USA Today hailed Nya as a “young female troubadour worth keeping your eyes and ears on,” in an entertainment feature on up-and-coming singer-
songwriters. “Her cool singing voice recalls Sade,” said the LA Times.

Between writing and performing new music, Nya took a musical sabbatical to focus on writing a novel—an endeavor she found quite daunting, until she began looking at each chapter as a verse in a very long song. Phoebe Pope and the Year of Four is her first novel.

In her free time, Nya enjoys hanging out with family and friends, searching for amazing gluten-free desserts, and bargain hunting for her next pair of funky shoes.

Nya holds a B.A. in Economics and an M.A. in Sociology, both from Stanford University.
