Sara Zarr-How to Save a Life

Recommended Posts

Links to Once Was Lost and Story of a Girl. I can't find a thread for Sweethearts.

I know I'm stealing Sara's thunder, but she has a new book, How to Save a Life, coming out in October. Here's the Amazon page description:

Jill MacSweeney just wants everything to go back to normal. But ever since her dad died, she's been isolating herself from her boyfriend, her best friends--everyone who wants to support her. You can't lose one family member and simply replace him with a new one, and when her mom decides to adopt a baby, that's exactly what it feels like she's trying to do. And that's decidedly not normal. With her world crumbling around her, can Jill come to embrace a new member of the family?

Mandy Kalinowski knows what it's like to grow up unwanted--to be raised by a mother who never intended to have a child. So when Mandy becomes pregnant, she knows she wants a better life for her baby. But can giving up a child be as easy as it seems? And will she ever be able to find someone to care for her, too?

Critically acclaimed author and National Book Award finalist Sara Zarr delivers a heart-wrenching story, told from dual perspectives, about what it means to be a family and the many roads we can take to become one.

I wonder if the title has any connection to the

or the movie

I talked about that with Sara a while back, and IIRC there's no connection at all with the film.

I can't find a thread for Sweethearts.

Neither can I, even though I've posted about it multiple times on the board.

 

Sara tweeted today:

 

 Hey, Sweethearts is part of @BNBuzz “28 Days of Love” which means you can get a Nook edition for a mere $2.99! http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/sweethearts-sara-zarr/1100270391?ean=9780316029261

I just got back from a weekend with Sara down at a retreat in Texas. She had just turned in her new novel. There may be more editing rounds ahead, I'm not sure, but I'm thrilled to know that the next one is getting close. I loved the most recent one: The Lucy Variations.
