Here's a big merci to the awesome Sara Zarr for joining us at readergirlz this month! Sweethearts is a treasure of a book, and we'll be thinking about it for years to come. Plus, we can't wait for Sara's next book, coming this fall. It's called Once Was Lost (just look at that amazing cover!), and here's the description:
Samara Taylor used to believe in miracles. She used to believe in a lot of things. As a pastor's kid, it's hard not to buy in to the idea of the perfect family, a loving God, and amazing grace. But lately, Sam has a lot of reason to doubt. Her mother lands in rehab after a DUI and her father seems more interested in his congregation than his family. When a young girl in her small town is kidnapped, the local tragedy overlaps with Sam's personal one, and the already-worn thread of faith holding her together begins to unravel.
Having Sara here this month has been beyond awesome. Thank you, Sara, for spending time with readergirlz!
