Interview: Jonathan Friesen , author of Unfolding

Jan 12, 2017

Conspiracies and conspiracy theories make for great stories --- who is hiding the truth, and why? In UNFOLDING, by Jonathan Friesen, a teenage boy named Jonah must investigate these and other questions when his town falls to chaos after a dangerous premonition made by his best friend, Stormi. With so many questions and complicated layers, UNFOLDING makes for a real page-turner, and we had to learn more from Friesen about his inspiration. Teen Board member Jeremy H., who reviewed the book, actually knew Friesen from his former writing course, so we were delighted when he agreed to answer some questions for us. In this interview with Teenreads.com's Jeremy H., Friesen discusses his writing style, which character he would love to meet and offers advice to up-and-coming YA authors.
