Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Samara Taylor used to believe in miracles. She used to believe in a lot of things.

When your father's a pastor, 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 reasons 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.

In her third novel, acclaimed author Sara Zarr examines the coexistence of affliction and hope, and what happens when everything you thought you believed--about God, your family, and yourself--is transformed.

Synopsis:

From the National Book Award Finalist ("Story of a Girl") comes a novel about a local calamity and a personal tragedy paralleling in the eyes of a 15-year-old girl as she begins to question the faith she always thought she'd have. A "Kirkus Reviews" Best Young Adult Book.
