Sherin asked Katie McGarry:

What inspired you to write about characters with such broken pasts, and where do you get these ideas from?

Katie McGarry Hi Sherin,

I grew up in a complicated neighborhood that had very complicated problems. My life, at times, was no exception to the heartache. I write the books that I needed when I was a teen. Books that show that there are people who face very difficult problems, but then discover that there is always hope.

Thank you,
