Greetings from ALA Midwinter! It seems fitting that my last contestant in the Debs Pageant should coincide with this conference. Full disclosure, I am actually typing this up a couple of days ahead because I am going to be in all day workshop, and then I’m going to the YALSA happy hour. But, when you read this, I will be there.
So, for the last time, in Secrets of Truth & Beauty, Dara is a former child pageant star. So, in order to introduce you to the wonderful authors and characters of the 2009 Debutantes, I am hosting a Debs Pageant on my blog. Our final contestant comes from Rhonda Stapleton’s Stupid Cupid. Let’s get on with the pageant!
Character name: Felicity
Biography: I am a brand-new matchmaker at Cupid’s Hollow. I love helping my fellow students and making a difference in my school by finding true love for them.
What is your talent? Caring about people. Is that a talent? Well, if it is, that’s mine.
What will you wear for the evening dress competition? I’m still in the process of shopping. I’m kind of broke right now, and my mom (aka, the House Nazi) won’t give me money. Tightwad!
Who is your escort? There’s only one escort I want–but I don’t want to say his name out loud and jinx it! *girly sigh*
And now for the interview portion . . . If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be? The one thing I would change is loneliness. No one would be alone–there has to be someone special out there for everyone. Even me, right?
Thanks Rhonda and Felicity!
