It is time to turn it over once again to Rhyanna for her special feature.
Hi! My name Rhyanna. I want to tell you about my interest. I love to read and write. If you love to read you might want to read the book in the next couple paragraphs…
Dystance: Winter’s Rising by M.R. Tufo
The book Dystance: Winter’s Rising is a wonderful book about a girl named Winter. M.R. Tufo (the author) was a great and creative author who did a terrific job on the book that I will tell you about. The book thrilled me even more than some of my favorite action series. This book was very descriptive on how the character acts like. Winter was a very interesting character.
Winter, my favorite character, went to war and she dreamed about her and her friend Tallow having freedom. If she found freedom, would she go back and lead her friends to freedom or would she turn away from them? She is a loyal friend who would do almost anything for someone she cared about. She would be a wonderful friend to have. Do you think that maybe you would want to save your friends and risk the chance of dying or go to freedom where you could do anything you wanted to do?
My favorite character is Winter because she is persistent about trying new things. She wants freedom and even though they are not supposed to, they love each other. Tallow (the one she loves but is not supposed to) is a close friend and such a powerful thing as friendship turned into love. They will be friends until they end no matter how much they are fighting with each other, Tallow is as much a loyal friend as Winter is.
I suggest this book to kids (and adults) who would like to read about a cool mind pulling, heartwarming book about war and fighting to survive and for freedom. If you think you are interested, check out Dystance: Winter’s Rising by M. R. Tufo.
In addition to the review, Rhyanna had the opportunity to ask author M.R. Tufo some questions.
Rhyanna’s Reads: What made you want to write a young adult book?
M.R. Tufo: I wrote a YA book because I love YA books, Harry Potter, Hunger Games, Insurgent, those are just a few, it’s really as simple as that, I wanted to see if I could bring the kind of happiness I get from reading to a younger crowd.
RR: When did you decide you wanted to be an author?
MRT: This one is a little tricky, I’ve always enjoyed writing but never thought to be an author. I guess maybe it hit me around the second or third Zombie Fallout book when people were actually enjoying the series and wanted to know when the next installment was coming out. At that point I was like hmmm maybe I would like to do this as a career.
RR: Did you name a character after someone you know?
MRT: A fair number of my characters are named after or are modeled after people from my life, on hindsight I wished I had changed some of them but its a little late now .
RR: Did you like to read when you were a child?
MRT: Reading was everything to me, my mom used to take me to the library every week. I used to have a hard time figuring out how to stay under my 4 allotted books maximum. I always had a stack I wanted to read for that week. Thank you for the questions Rhyanna!
Until next time…
