Jess's Review:

Strange and not so predictable!

Going into this book I was ready for a crazy ride. I was intrigued by the synopsis. After the first few chapters I thought I knew what was going to happen next but it the writer did a good job keeping us on our toes. The writing was a bit shaky to me and I admit sometimes I had a hard time understanding what she was trying to convey, but nothing too drastic and nothing to take away from the story. Anna was a bit naive and very sheltered, but you really wanted her to bust out of her shell. Her fascination with Emry was bordering obsession and at times made you want to yell "back up girl!". At times their love story was almost unhealthy and their back and forth emotional give and take was too tedious for me personally but it works well with the story of prisoner and first time lover. While this story didn't wow me, it didn't make me bored either. There were some great heart beating scenes but a lot of fluff to get to it. It's a good airplane book.

3 1/2 of 5 stars

Sara V. Zook new picMEET SARA
Sara wrote her first book at age six. Of course, it was only a few pages, handwritten by a 6-year-old and was about kitty cats. As a child, some days she would be out venturing in the woods with her older brother and cousins, but sometimes would stay inside and create stories, write them down in a notebook and then pretend to publish them by typing them up on her mother's old typewriter. "I know, what a weird child I was." From then on out, Sara didn't want to be anything but a writer. When others would ask her classmates what they wanted to be when they grew up, some would say the usual things, singers, veterinarians, astronauts, but not Sara. Sara would say writer, and then she'd get a strange stare. Writer? What child says they want to be a writer?

Sara graduated from United High School in 2000, a small school out in the country where everyone knew each other from kindergarten up and could tell you every little detail about each other and still can. "It was a nice area to grow up, and I love going back."

In 2004, Sara graduated from the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown with a bachelor's in, you guessed it, creative writing. She had such a blast in college, met some of the greatest people that Sara still remains in close contact with along with her husband, Brad. They were married and had two children back to back, so while Sara was in "mommy land," her writing was put on the back-burner.

Sara started writing again in the summer of 2010, and after three months, 'Strange in Skin' became the product of her imagination. Sara had so much fun writing it, she couldn't stop. She would work all day and then stay up late at night typing up a few more chapters. She didn't want it to end, so Sara decided she would have to write more books to follow it. The main characters, Anna James and Emry Logan, were people Sara could relate to, that she loved to relate to. There's nothing quite like a sappy love story that's so good it sucks you in. You want them to be together. They have to be together and you can't stop reading until they are together. That with a little paranormal twist, and voila, a book is born.

Then Sara and Brad became proud parents once again. Sara is still in "mommy land" but also Strange in Skin fantasy land. The mix of both raising children and writing makes for some pretty entertaining days. Sara could write a million stories on her kids alone, especially the things that come out of their mouths that you're either so shocked they said or are so funny that you can't stop laughing.
