Apocalypse Tour Interview #5: Courtney Summers, Author of This Is Not A Test


On Saturday November 10th, 2012 I attended the Apocalypse Tour stop in Belleville, Ontario. There I got to meet five totally amazing authors, hang out with fellow bloggers, go shopping and have a totally awesome time.

If you couldn't make it to the event, I'm here to give you the next best thing: all week long I will be posting interviews with the five authors who came to the Belleville Chapters. You also have a chance to win some awesome swag by answering trivia from the videos, so make sure you watch them all as they go up!

Thanks again to Megan Crewe, Lesley Livingston, Maureen McGowan, Courtney Summers and Cheryl Rainfield for coming to Belleville Chapters, hanging out with us and taking the time to do these interviews!


Today's guest is Courtney Summers, author of This Is Not A Test. Before we get going, here's a quick look at the book.


Plot Summary:
(Add to your GoodReads)
It’s the end of the world. Six students have taken cover in Cortege High but shelter is little comfort when the dead outside won’t stop pounding on the doors. One bite is all it takes to kill a person and bring them back as a monstrous version of their former self. To Sloane Price, that doesn’t sound so bad. Six months ago, her world collapsed and since then, she’s failed to find a reason to keep going. Now seems like the perfect time to give up. As Sloane eagerly waits for the barricades to fall, she’s forced to witness the apocalypse through the eyes of five people who actuallywant to live. But as the days crawl by, the motivations for survival change in startling ways and soon the group’s fate is determined less and less by what’s happening outside and more and more by the unpredictable and violent bids for life—and death—inside. When everything is gone, what do you hold on to?

This Is Not A Test is one of the best books that I have read this year, and will no doubt be on my top ten list for 2012. I was extremely excited to meet Courtney at Apocalypse Tour last weekend. Want to see the interview I did with Courtney? Just click the play button below.
