Blog Tour: Zero Day

Zero Day

 

About Zero Day by Jan Gangsei 

Eight years ago, Addie Webster was the victim of the most notorious kidnapping case of the decade. Addie vanished—and her high-profile parents were forced to move on.

Mark Webster is now president of the United States, fighting to keep the oval office after a tumultuous first term. Then, the unthinkable happens: the president’s daughter resurfaces. Addie is brought back into her family’s fold, but who is this sixteen-year-old girl with a quiet, burning intelligence now living in the White House? There are those in the president’s political circle who find her timely return suspicious.

When the NSA approaches Darrow Fergusson, Addie’s childhood best friend and the son of the president’s chief of staff, he doesn’t know what to think. How could this slip of a girl be a threat to national security? But at the risk of having his own secrets exposed by the powerful government agency, Darrow agrees to spy on Addie.

It soon becomes apparent that Addie is much more than the traumatized victim of a sick political fringe group. Addie has come with a mission. Will she choose to complete it? And what will happen if she does?

Songs that represent ZERO DAY

Thanks! I love music, and it’s thrill to share some of the songs that I think represent ZERO DAY. So, without further ado…

Runaway by Aurora – a beautiful, haunting song by a very talented young Norwegian songwriter that I think perfectly represents Addie’s conflicted feelings as she returns home and tries to adjust. Gives me goosebumps every time I hear it.

Like a River Runs by Bleachers – the soundtrack of Darrow’s life as he grew up in the shadow of Addie’s disappearance.

Fake You Out by twenty one pilots, and Web of Deception by Thievery Corporation – titles pretty much explain themselves… 🙂

When We Were Young by Adele – (had to get a song by Addie’s namesake in there)! To me, this one really sums up Addie’s feelings for Darrow, especially when he asks her to dance at prom

And finally,

Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol – the unnamed song Darrow and Addie dance to at prom, (and her favorite song when she was a little kid – mainly because back then she thought it was about puppies chasing cars and she really wanted a dog 🙂. But as Darrow leads her across the dance floor—and she’s come to question everything she believes—the lyrics take on an entirely new meaning.

Thanks for having me today! Hope you enjoyed the selection (and seriously, if you haven’t heard Aurora, check her out—her voice is amazing, and I think she has an incredible career ahead of her—she wrote Runaway when she was only twelve!).

    I love when music and books come together. And when you can find the perfect song for a character, it helps get to know them even better.
