Out of Control Blog Tour: Characters (Guest Post)

I am really please to be part of the blog tour for Sarah Alderson's new book, Out of Control.  I love Sarah's stories and Out of Control is no exception!  I loved it!!

Sarah has stopped by to talk about the main characters in the story...


Out of Control is set over 36 hours in New York. Think 24 crossed with Taken. The main characters are 17 year old Liva and 19 year old Jay, who are complete opposites but who are thrown together and forced on the run when the police station they are in comes under attack by two men who are hunting Liva. The story is told through Liva’s point of view and while there are other characters it’s really about Jay and Liva and how over the course of 36 hours their lives are turned upside down and they are both forced to confront who they are.

JAY (Jaime)
19 years old, half Cuban and half American, Jay has grown up in Queens, New York. He’s street smart but also smart. The youngest of three brothers he’s the only one who has a chance of making it. His oldest brother is in jail and his middle brother is in a gang. But Jay’s dream of going to college is turned on its head the night he does his brother a favour and ends up getting arrested. Jay’s quick witted, charming and committed to his single mum and to trying to make things right.

Liva by contrast has grown up overseas, surrounded by the trappings of wealth. The daughter of a man who owns a global security company, Liva has lived her life behind high walls, protected by bodyguards. She’s tough, uncompromising, and committed to living by the rules (whereas Jay thinks rules are made to be broken). After being expelled from school Liva moves to New York to live with her father and to study dance. She’s guarded, untrusting and filled with secret guilt about a tragedy that happened years before.


Thanks Sarah!  I love Nathan and Bella as Jay and Liva - they are just how I pictured them!
