Interview with the Author: Ali B on The Sixteen

During the Summer Los Tres Amigos read The Sixteen, the latest addition to author Ali B's Soul Jumper book series.  

Click here to check out our review of this fab middle school read and keep reading to view my interview with author Ali B.



The Interview:

Was the middle school always your intended audience?
The Soul Jumpers series is a great bridge from chapter books to young adult. I’ve always loved middle grades fiction, and I knew Iris would make a great MGF character. Books for this age group have just enough mystery, angst, independence, and a little bit of spookiness to appeal to the tween audience. My series challenges young readers and makes them think without overwhelming them with mature themes.

Who is your favorite author?
I’m going to have to break that down by genre.

  • Adult Fiction – Barbara Kingsolver
  • Young Adult – Rainbow Rowell
  • Middle Grades – Gary Schmidt
  • Picture Book – Dr. Seuss

What are you reading?
I am currently reading The Daughters of Mars by Thomas Keneally. To my primary class I am reading The Littles by John Peterson.

What can we expect next from Ali B.?
I am working on the third installment of the Soul Jumpers series. I’m also very interested in trying my hand at a picture book. Something humorous with clever illustrations.

What's next for Iris?
So much. Iris will travel, protect, conquer evil, and discover herself, her skills, and the power of being a soul jumper.
