An Interview with Author Carrie Arcos

 

My most recent interview was with Carrie Arcos, author of Out of Reach, a National Book Award Finalist for 2012 in Young People’s Literature!

Carrie shared some of the backstory for her book and gave insights for others wanting to become writers.

Read more about the book at www.carriearcos.com:

“Rachel has always idolized her older brother Micah. He struggles with addiction, but she tells herself that he’s in control. And she almost believes it. Until the night that Micah doesn’t come home.

Rachel’s terrified—and she can’t help but feel responsible. She should have listened when Micah tried to confide in her. And she only feels more guilt when she receives an anonymous note telling her that Micah is nearby and in danger.

With nothing more to go on than hope and a slim lead, Rachel and Micah’s best friend, Tyler, begin the search. Along the way, Rachel will be forced to confront her own dark secrets, her growing attraction to Tyler…and the possibility that Micah may never come home.”
