[amazon_link id=”B005EP26LC” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ][/amazon_link]The life of young adult novelist Sara Zarr has changed dramatically in the last three years, following publication of her first book, Story of a Girl.

That book led her to be a finalist for the 2007 National Book Award for Young People’s Literature. She didn’t win, but as I told her in our first interview, the morning after the awards, she might have been better off without that first book pressure.

And she never did hit a sophomore jinx: her second work, Sweethearts, was every bit as good and clever as book #1.

SARA ZARR podcast excerpt: “Can what I believe stand up to my questions about it? It was really challenging material. It pushed me in every way as a writer.”

Now book #3, the just published Once Was Lost, confirms Zarr’s talents as an inventive storyteller of consistent and lasting talent. And this is a very different story than her first two; forget about this writer taking the easy, familiar path.

This is Sara Zarr’s third appearance on Mr. Media Radio, making her the first guest to return so many times.
