Hi Ali, thank you so much for stopping by today. I know you’ve had a rough time, so sit back, take a tee and some cake and relax for a little bit…
Ali, your life has changed quite a bit. From a girl with nearly no friends and who stayed nearly all her life inside to a kick ass strong girl who goes out at night hunting Zombies. What do you hate and love most about these dramatic changes in your life?
Ali: I love that I’m free of my gilded cage, but I hate that I’m without my family. I love that I’m kicking evil’s butt and not bothering with names, but I hate that my friends are constantly in danger. My life now revolves around a war I never knew was being waged, and yet, I’m happier than I’ve ever been.
In “Through the Zombie Glass” Gena tells us all about the difficult and horrible time you had to go through. What advice would you give yourself now to your younger self?
Ali: I would say, “Don’t give up. Every storm has an end. And even better, pretty flowers will bloom and the sun will shine.”
… and what advice would you give Cole?
Ali: I would say, “When you meet the new girl at school, the blond who just lost her entire family, DON’T GIVE HER A HARD TIME! And then, when she tells you how she feels about you, BELIEVE HER!”
All problems aside, what do you love most about Cole?
Ali: His brutal sense of honesty. Seriously. Beware girls. If you ask him how fat you look in a pair of jeans, he will tell you. But I also love his smile. He doesn’t show it often, but oh, when he does…I melt.
In “Through the Zombie Glass” a few new people arrive, some of then truly annoying right? Just between you and me, tell us 3 things you hate most about Gavin and … tell us 3 things you like about him! ( I won’t tell him, I promise!! )
Ali: The three things that annoy me are also the three things I love. Gavin is persistent, and he has a warped sense of humor, and an ego that just won’t quit. A girl is never bored around him.
Thank you so much for your time Ali! Hope to see you back soon!
