Interview with the 16-year-old heroine from the YA novel, Andrea and the 5-Day Challenge by Cindy K. Green


1. Andrea Jamison, tell me the most interesting thing about you.

There isn’t a whole lot that’s interesting about me. My friends are so much more fascinating. You see, I’m the invisible one at our school. I’m not smart like Amy or artistic like Angie or beautiful and popular like Alisha. I’m just me. Well, I do play the piano, and some people think I’m pretty good too, but I don’t think that’s very interesting. Sometimes I play for church, and my parents have high hopes for my future. I’d just like to spend one day not making a completely fool of myself at school which incidentally seems highly unlikely if you look at my track record.

2. What do you do for fun?

Fun? There is no fun in my life because of the aforementioned piano. My parents are forever telling me to ‘focus’ so I can get into a place like Juilliard one day. Occasionally, though, I do have book club with my friends. Some of my best memories are of us laughing over a good book.

3. What do you put off doing because you dread it?

Geometry. I am a totally dunce and yet I am tutoring the cute transfer jock, Luke Ryan. But if it weren’t for him I’d put off Geometry indefinitely.

4. What are you afraid of most in life?

I think I am most afraid of being seen. I’ve gotten used to being the invisible one and then Luke saw me and it freaked me out. I’m still trying to get used to it.

5. What do you want out of life?

I’m still trying to figure that one out. I know I want to serve God in some way and hope he uses my life for something useful. I do love playing music and who knows maybe that is my calling after all.

6. What is the most important thing to you?

Belonging. I’m blessed with an awesome group of friends, and, if I have to admit it, my parents are kinda great too. But outside of my safe bubble, I feel out of my element.

7. Do you read? If so, what is your favorite type of book to read?

I love to read. Like I said, I have a book club with my friends. It used to be Little House on the Prairie and anything with a horse. These days I’ve delved into the classics like Austen, Alcott and Dickens.

8. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

Just one thing? I think I could list at least ten things right now. Mostly, I wish I could have more confidence in myself…well, maybe, it’s more like I need faith that God is going to lead me the way I should go instead of fretting over everything all the time.

9. Do you have a pet? If so, what is it and why that pet?

No, no pets. I wanted a cat once, but Dad nixed the idea. Right now, I’d rather have a car.

10. If you could travel back in time, where would you go and why?

Oh, the options there! Pretty much anywhere but here, but if I had to pick I’d love to spend some time in the Regency era in England and see what it was like to live like one of Jane Austen’s heroines. My friend Amy loves to compare Luke and me to Darcy and Elizabeth. I could only wish.
