SCAVENGER HUNT POST
Abigail Johnson, YA Author, If I Fix You
Today, I am hosting Abigail Johnson on my website for the YA Scavenger Hunt! Abigail Johnson was born in Pennsylvania. When she was twelve, her family traded in snowstorms for year-round summers and moved to Arizona. Abigail chronicled the entire cross-country road trip in a purple spiral-bound notebook that she still has, and has been writing ever since. She became a tetraplegic after breaking her neck in a car accident when she was seventeen, but hasn’t let that stop her from bodysurfing in Mexico, writing and directing a high-school production of Cinderella, and becoming a published author. Visit Abigail online at abigailjohnsonbooks.com and follow her on Twitter, @AbigailsWriting.

EXCLUSIVE CONTENT
If I Fix You first edition book cover, YA Book, Abigail Johnson

When sixteen-year-old Jill Whitaker’s mom walks out-with a sticky note as a goodbye-only Jill knows the real reason she’s gone. But how can she tell her father? Jill can hardly believe the truth herself.

Suddenly, the girl who likes to fix things-cars, relationships, romances, people-is all broken up. It used to be, her best friend, tall, blond and hot flirt Sean Addison, could make her smile in seconds. But not anymore. They don’t even talk.

With nothing making sense, Jill tries to pick up the pieces of her life. But when a new guy moves in next door, intense, seriously cute, but with scars-on the inside and out-that he thinks don’t show, Jill finds herself trying to make things better for Daniel. But over one long, hot Arizona summer, she realizes she can’t fix anyone’s life until she fixes her own. And she knows just where to start…


 IFFY Fan Cast.png
I binge watched so many awesome 90’s shows while writing If I Fix YouVeronica Mars and Gilmore Girls were both in heavy rotation, but I also discovered Felicity (I’m not the only one who fell in love with Scott Speedman in his portrayal of Ben Covington, am I?) and Everwood and so many more. Someday I’m going to write a character who looks like Jason Behr from Roswell, but in the meantime, here’s my dream cast for If I Fix You:
Jill (Emily VanCamp circa Everwood TV show)
Jill’s dad, Jim (Scott Patterson circa Gilmore Girls TV show)
Jill’s mom, Katheryn (Madeline Stowe circa Twelve Monkeys movie)
Daniel (Scott Speedman but with dark hair circa Felicity TV show)
Claire (Elle Fanning circa We Bought A Zoo movie)
Sean (Neil Haskell from the TV show So You Think You Can Dance)
Cammie (Selena Gomez)

Don’t forget to enter the contest for a chance to win a ton of books by me, Abigail Johnson, and more! To enter, you need to know that my favorite number is 2. Add up all the favorite numbers of the authors on the pink team and you’ll have all the secret code to enter for the grand prize!

  1. I’ve been interested in quite a few of the books that I’ve seen. Aphrodite is definitely one that has caught my attention though. Thank you for participating!

  2. YASH is SO much fun! I’m having a blast searching through blogs and finding new favorite books and authors. I don’t know if I can pick a favorite! But I will say, I love Colleen Houck, so I loved seeing her sneak peak as I went through the Pink Team.

  3. my fave thing so far is the new books I’m discovering. Like I had heard of some of these before, and even read a few of them, but the one i’m most excited about is a new book I discovered doing this hunt called “Fragile Chaos” The cover is DOPE. I can’t wait until I can get my hands on that

  4. I love Greek Mythology so much! Especially after reading the Percy Jackson series, so your content, by far, was my fav 😉

  5. There are so many interesting and fun books being shown on YASH. My TBR list is filling quite rapidly. TBH, I’m very intrigued by Persephone, as well as Kathleen Baldwin’s book. Thanks for participating!

  6. I could go on and on about all the books I just can’t wait to read, but at the top of my list are Reunited, Roseblood,Poison’s Kiss, When Darkness Falls, and Dream Fall!

  7. Honestly, my fave find is Persephone. I’ve been dying to read this series! I signed up for your newletter but I’m not one for audio books…but if it’s the way to read the book, I’ll take it. Though I would love to win an ebook copy!
    Thank you, Kaitlin! 😍❤️
