Getting To Know Your "Float" Characters, Pt. II


Name: Apollonia Papadopolous
DOB: 02/19/1995
Hometown: Sitia, Crete, Greece
Instrument: Piano
Favorite Band/Artist: Dream Theater

Apollonia is the newest foreign exchange student to arrive at Philburn High. Sent at the request of her father, she plans to live in Texas with her aunt until her high school education is complete. Once graduated, her goal is to move to New York and attend one of the world's most prestigious music schools, the Juilliard Performance Arts Conservatory.

But on the first day of school, she meets a fellow student who will change the course of her life forever: Clyde Smitherson.

Clyde instantly finds Apollonia very attractive, but her beauty and his ignorance of Greek culture make getting to know her an intimidating task. All he needs to do, however, is talk to her, and he'll realize just how much she likes him in return. Finding a common ground in their love for metal music, Clyde gets the courage to invite Apollonia to a show from one of her favorite bands, Shock Tooth.

What she doesn't know is that both Clyde and Shock Tooth have a secret: The ability to achieve impossible feats through the power of Paranormal Music. Less than a month later, she will find herself at the mercy of Clyde's enemies. Not only could she lose her ability to play piano, but her very life as well.

Quote from the book: "I'm not going anywhere. My father will have to physically drag me away before I leave you behind, leave you thinking that you ruined my life. Your life and my life are now the same. And if you're not in it then I will be ruined."
