Character Connection: Violet Ambrose (Character Interview)

Hey guys! I have Violet Ambrose from Kimberly Derting's The Body Finder here! And also, it's Kim's birthday so go tweet her happy birthday at @KimberlyDerting! Here's my chat with Violet!

What do you think of your 'ability'? Do you think it's a talent? Or a curse?
I used to think it was more of a curse; I just wanted to be normal like everyone else. But when I realized that it might be useful in tracking down a killer, I realized it might not be so bad to be different.

What's your favorite memory of you and Jay?
When we were younger, Jay and I used to play in the woods for hours, building forts and making treasure maps. Sometimes he would have to wait while I’d dig up an animal that called out to me, but he never complained. Jay’s just like that, kind of sweet, even about my ability.

How did you meet Jay?
He moved to our school in the first grade and he didn’t have any friends. I told him that if he kissed Chelsea Morrison I’d be his best friend. Of course, I didn’t think he’d really do it, but he did. And Chelsea did what I’d expect her to do, she pushed him down. The school had a no-tolerance policy when it came to any physical contact (like kissing or pushing), so the principal called all of our parents and we got in trouble. But we’ve been best friends ever since.

What's your favorite book?
I had to read To Kill a Mockingbird once for a class, and I really liked it! But if I’m being totally honest, I really liked Carrie by Stephen King. Now she had a creepy ability!

Do you wish that you never had your ability? Or do you wish that there were more people with your ability?
I used to, like I said before, I just wanted to be normal. I’m not sure I wish there were more people with my ability, but sometimes I wish there was someone I could talk to who really understood what it was like, being different. I wish I could talk to my grandmother about what it was like for her.

What's your biggest fear?
Losing someone I love, isn’t that everyone’s fear? I’d do anything to protect my friends and family.

Do you fear your ability?
No. It’s kind of weird, I guess, growing up with something like that you never know anything different so it’s not scary. It probably helps that my parents are so understanding about it. If they were freaked out about it, maybe I would be too.
