  8. Dear Demitria Lunetta,

    In the interest of deepening my knowledge on your book, I have a few questions to help me understand this suspenseful and frightening story of survival that you call In The After. Take note that I’m not that far into your book, page 81 to be exact, but I really like it.
    So far, I have really enjoyed how the main characters, Amy and Baby, are so willing to adapt to life in the after. It’s crazy to me how a young teenage girl with no guidance or anything survives all by herself and does everything to survive from foraging for food at overrun stores to starting a whole new language using her hands that only she and Baby can understand because she learned that They are attracted to noise. If you put yourself in her shoes, would you be able to do all the things that she does just to survive? I know some authors see themselves as the main character so I was just wondering if that was why you made Amy the way she is? When Amy and Baby see Amber in the grocery store, why didn’t you let Amy help her out? Amy only makes her “presence known to women, depending on how scrawny they look” and I’m pretty sure that Amber was weak and alone and begging for help so why didn’t she help her? Even though Amy ends up helping her on accident, why didn’t she just send her on her way after she fed and clothed her? Baby would’ve been heartbroken for sure, but wouldn’t it be better than risking both of their lives to help out some random stranger?
    This book has taught me that people are smarter than they seem when put to the test and to not give up when faced with a near impossible challenge: surving.

    Always a fan,
    Cole Roberts(14)

  9. Just started reading bad blood. Scotland is in my blood too. Always though we were descended from Ireland, but once I found out our last name is Scottish, I had to go and see what it was like. This summer will be the third time. All the places you mention I have been to except Skye--and it's where my ancestors are from. Love the Highlands. Thanks for this story about a place I consider a home away from home.
