TOUR SCHEDULE

Before we meet Sara's beauty, let's hear from her herself.

Hi Sara! Yay! for book 3! It's great to have you here. 
I’m so excited and happy to be here! Thank you for having me!

Okay, let's start with how is writing a third book in a series different from writing the first two books? 
The third book has a lot of pressure on it to wrap the story up in a satisfying way, so it tends to take a bit more time to write than other installments. But it’s also super satisfying as the writer to write it, since you’ve been with these characters from the beginning and can’t wait to give them their happy ending.

And endings are such sweet sorrow... ;)

Your main character Isis Blake has been through the ringer and back. How did she change from the first book to this one? 
Isis definitely changed, though I don’t think her hilarious core personality changed at all. Seeing someone die is always a traumatic experience, and seeing someone you knew and liked die is possibly the worst thing that can happen to someone. Isis is a little more doubtful, a little more hesitant, and she’s pretty weepy in this book. But that’s to be expected. I think the most important thing she learned in this book was that her actions have consequences, no matter how small. 

Ah ... and that's a great lesson to learn. 

What do you think is the one of the toughest things high schoolers have to face today, and how do you think young adult authors can shed light on these issues? 
It’s been a while since I was a teenager so I’m not going to pretend I know what’s happening for them these days, but I think one of the harder elements they face is expectations. Everyone, from their parents to teachers to their peers, have such high expectations for them, in all spheres of their life – social, academic, future planning wise. It can get super overwhelming sometimes. Just remember to be kind to the teenagers you know – they’re facing worlds more pressure than we think.

I really love and respect this answer. Expectations are hard and especially in today's fast-paced and ever-changing world. Thank you so much for sharing part of your day with us. It's been a pleasure. All the luck to you always!

Now readers, ready to see Sara's third book baby in this series? And keep scrolling because she's got tons of teasers to entice you to check out this story. 


Remember Me Forever (Lovely Vicious #3)
by Sara Wolf

Publication Date:  May 2, 2017
Publisher:  Entangled Teen 

Description: Isis Blake hasn’t fallen in love in three years, forty-three weeks, and two days. Or so she thinks. 

The boy she maybe-sort-of-definitely loved and sort-of-maybe-definitely hated has dropped off the face of the planet in the face of tragedy, leaving a Jack Hunter–shaped hole. Determined to be happy, Isis fills it in with lies and puts on a brave smile for her new life at Ohio State University. 

But the smile lasts only until he shows up. The menace from her past—her darkest secret, Nameless—is attending OSU right alongside her. And he’s whispering that he has something Isis wants—something she needs to see to move forward. To move on.

Isis has always been able to pretend everything is okay. But not anymore.

Isis Blake might be good at putting herself back together. 

But Jack Hunter is better.

"What a rush! Brilliantly crafted, sharply written, and completely unpredictable--the perfect ending to an all-time favorite series! Sara Wolf is a fresh voice in YA, and her characters never fail to make me laugh and think. If you're in the mood for an edgy, witty, one-of-a-kind romance, this is definitely for you!" --Rachel Harris, NYT bestselling author

~EXCERPT~ 
I have to be stone. The slightest crack and I’ll spill my every secret at her feet—that I crave her like a parched plant craves the rain. That the only time I feel alive—honestly, radiantly alive—is when I see her purple streaks, the outline of her shoulders, her smile.
Note from me: I really love the sound of these characters, of this entire series.

~THE AUTHOR~

Sara Wolf is a twenty-something author who adores baking, screaming at her cats, and screaming at herself while she types hilarious things. When she was a kid, she was too busy eating dirt to write her
first terrible book. Twenty years later, she picked up a keyboard and started mashing her fists on it and created the monster known as the Lovely Vicious series. She lives in San Diego with two cats, a crippling-yet-refreshing sense of self-doubt, and not enough fruit tarts ever. Website • Twitter • Facebook • Goodreads
