Some friends who have already read Waiting for Ethan have told me that Gina is a lot like me. I don’t see that. Though I’ve heard that in debut novels especially, authors tend to write about themselves. Still, I’d like to think I would be smarter than Gina is in similar situations, but I also know that it’s easy to make poor decisions when you’re in love – or want to be in love.
So, even if readers don’t understand the choices Gina makes, I hope they’ll be empathetic and rooting for her. I’ll find out in a few weeks, and like I said, I’m nervous about it.
