Character Interview Every Inferno Book Tour

8 Aug


We’re hosting an interview with one of the characters from YA mystery “Every Inferno”. Enjoy the character interview.

With JJ Jones, star of Every Inferno.

Can you tell us a little about yourself? Who are you? What is your role in the story?


Hey. I’m JJ. I dunno…I mean, there’s not much to say about me. I’m a sophomore in high school. I live with my aunt, Maggie. I like to party. What else do you need to know? I’m not sure why I have to be here, anyway. Johanna said she wanted me to stop by your blog, but she didn’t say you’d be asking me all kinds of questions.

What is your favorite hobby?


Look, don’t get all “that’s so cute” or anything, but I sort of like to write. That’s pretty much it. Otherwise I mostly just hang out with my friends.

No, I’m not telling you what I write. That’s none of your business.

What is the challenge you’re trying to overcome during the story?


Probably these dreams I started having lately. I don’t really like talking about them. They’re about Tattoo Guy. The guy who killed my parents.

Then there’s figuring out what’s going on with McKinley. And fighting with Darryl. And Patrick. Yeah. Plenty of challenges.

If you could make one wish, what would it be?


Probably for this interview to be over.

Tell us a secret about you.


No way! You learn enough secrets about me in this book Johanna insisted on writing.

About Every Inferno

EveryInferno-400x600Title: Every Inferno

Author: Johanna Parkhurst

 Genre: Young Adult, Mystery, LGBTQ

Depressed. Defiant. Possible alcoholic. These are just a few of the terms used to describe fifteen-year-old Jacob Jasper Jones. Lately, though, JJ has a new one to add to the list: detective. He’s been having strange dreams about the fire that killed his parents ten years ago, and he thinks he finally has the clue to catching the arsonist who destroyed his family.

A murder investigation isn’t the only thing the dreams trigger for JJ, though. They also lead to secret meetings with his estranged sister, an unlikely connection with a doctor who lost his daughter in the fire, and a confusing friendship with McKinley, a classmate of JJ’s who seems determined to help him solve the mystery.

All JJ wants is to shake the problems that have followed him since that fire, and he’s convinced he must catch the arsonist to do it. But as JJ struggles to find the culprit, he sees there’s more than one mystery in his life he needs to solve.
