Image of Once Was Lost

Zarr isn't preachy as she delves into themes of trust, faith and growing up. Sam's struggle is one teens of any religion can relate to.

Sam used to believe in miracles; being a pastor's daughter makes it hard not to. When her mom goes into rehab, her father continues to lie to her about increasingly serious things and a girl in her community is abducted, she begins questioning everything she thought she knew, especially her own faith. (LITTLE, BROWN , Oct., 217 pp., $16.99, ISBN: 9780316036047, HC, 12 and Up)
