Interview with Vivi Barnes

The other day Vivi Barnes and I got together to hang out and chat about her book. We videoed it so you could join us!

Olivia TwistedHere’s the blurb from Amazon on Vivi’s upcoming YA contemporary, OLIVIA TWISTED:

Tossed from foster home to foster home, Olivia’s seen a lot in her sixteen years. She’s hardened, sure, though mostly just wants to fly under the radar until graduation. But her natural ability with computers catches the eye of Z, a mysterious guy at her new school. Soon, Z has brought Liv into his team of hacker elite—break into a few bank accounts, and voila, he drives a motorcycle. Follow his lead, and Olivia might even be able to escape from her oppressive foster parents. As Olivia and Z grow closer, though, so does the watchful eye of Bill Sykes, Z’s boss. And he’s got bigger plans for Liv…

And here is the video!
