I'm super excited to share with you today this chat I had with Gage McKenna (the main character in Dani Pettrey's new book, Stranded) and I hope you have fun reading it! :) Be sure to check out the giveaway at the end of this post.
Welcome to Christian Bookshelf Reviews, Gage McKenna! Will you tell us a little bit about what’s been going on in your life recently?
When you think of summer, what’s the first thing that comes to mind?
Family bbq's. I love firing up the grill and time spent with my family.
What’s your favorite party food?
Guacamole and chips.
What’s your favorite summer activity?
Kayak. What else?
The trumpet and the piano.
Take the kayak for a spin out in the ocean. There's nothing like the crisp sea spray in your face, the burn in your muscles, the momentum of the paddle cutting through the waves. It's invigorating!
What’s your greatest fear?
Now you know guys never talk about that sort of thing ;)
In the McKenna family, who is the:
Best dressed? Me. No question there ;)
Worst dressed? Reef. He's got the extreme sports look going. Not exactly Dolce if you know what I mean.
Jokester? Me. I like keeping it fun.
Best cook? Me. No one can flame up the bbq or the stove like I can.
Worst cook? Kayden. Seriously. Do not eat anything she cooks or bakes or boils… You get the idea. Scary bad.
Best planner? Kayden. She's always keeping us in line. Though, Piper's pretty good at the planning thing too.
Pickiest eater? Piper. She won't eat anything with eyes still on it. Sure leaves off a lot of fresh caught seafood.
Leader? Cole. He's the oldest and a natural born leader.
What is something about the McKenna family that isn’t well known?
When we rebranded our adventure excursion shop Last Frontier Adventures the girls decided we needed a theme song. Ridiculous, but when they chose Vacation by the Go-Go's, we men stepped in and picked a decent one-- For the Love of the Game by Pillar. At least it's a rocking song.
Who’s the matchmaker in the McKenna family? Has he/she ever tried to match you up with someone?
Piper. Who hasn't she tried matching me up with.
What’s your idea of the perfect day?
A day spent riding the rapids and then dinner by campfire on the beach.
Do you have a favorite birthday memory? If so, please share.
The year I turned ten. My parents got me my very own kayak. It was blue and covered with Captain America stickers. I loved that thing. Still have it in a shed somewhere.
Thanks so much for visiting with us today, Gage! It’s been a pleasure getting to know more about you and the McKenna clan.
It was my pleasure.
