Today I am really excited to be a part of the blog tour for Shaun David Hutchinson’s WE ARE THE ANTS, which is one of my most anticipated books for 2016! Before we get to Shaun’s guest post (and the GIVEAWAY!), let me tell you about the book.
ABOUT WE ARE THE ANTS
PUBLISHER: Simon Pulse // January 19, 2016
Henry Denton doesn’t know why the aliens chose to abduct him when he was thirteen, and he doesn’t know why they continue to steal him from his bed and take him aboard their ship. He doesn’t know why the world is going to end or why the aliens have offered him the opportunity to avert the impending disaster by pressing a big red button.
But they have. And they’ve only given him 144 days to make up his mind.
Since the suicide of his boyfriend, Jesse, Henry has been adrift. He’s become estranged from his best friend, started hooking up with his sworn enemy, and his family is oblivious to everything that’s going on around them. As far as Henry is concerned, a world without Jesse is a world he isn’t sure is worth saving. Until he meets Diego Vega, an artist with a secret past who forces Henry to question his beliefs, his place in the universe, and whether any of it really matters. But before Henry can save the world, he’s got to figure out how to save himself, and the aliens haven’t given him a button for that.
So as Henry only has 144 days to decide the fate of the world, I asked Shaun what he would do if the world was ending in 144 days.
Top ten things I would do if the world was ending in 144 days
- Track down my 11th grade English teacher, Mrs. Everard, and tell her I’m sorry for being such a pain in her butt.
- Spend a week living in the Louvre.
- Sample every kind of weird food I could get my hands on.
- Travel to the highest point on Earth I could realistically reach and stare at the stars.
- Fly a plane.
- See Hamilton…even if I had to sell a kidney for a ticket.
- Smile more.
- Spend time with strangers, listening to their stories.
- Swim in a giant pool of Jell-O.
- Spend as much time with my loved ones as possible.
