Grogan applied the Page 69 Test to her new YA thriller, From Where I Watch You, and reported the following:
Page 69 absolutely is representative of the whole book! Phew!Visit Shannon Grogan's website.
My main character Kara is sitting with Charlie (her lifetime crush, who is back in town with secrets of his own) at El Diablo coffee shop in Seattle, arguing about Kara’s plans for the future, which includes her plan to ‘run away’ to San Francisco to enter a national baking contest in the hopes of earning a scholarship to pastry school.
Page 69 not only reminds the reader of Kara’s plans to escape her collapsed family life, but it also reminds us that she has a stalker, and a love interest building.
I’ll insert one quote from the page, which is a thought Kara is having while Charlie prods about her plan:
The “alone” in his sentence makes me think of the notes, and I wonder if whoever wrote them is watching us right now.
