Weaving Fact
with Fiction

Young Adult Author Sara Fujimura's Blog

You might not know that I started off my writing career as a journalist. Even though I write fiction full time now, I still look at everything with a journalist's eye. If you are a lifelong learner and love behind-the-scenes looks at how art is made (like me!), read on and enjoy.

EVERY REASON WE SHOULDN'T

**March 3, 2020 with Tor Teen**

YA Contemporary Fiction

Sixteen-year-old figure skater Olivia Kennedy’s Olympic dreams have ended. She’s bitter, but enjoying life as a regular teenager instead of trying to live up to expectations of being the daughter of Olympians Michael Kennedy and Midori Nakashima...until Jonah Choi starts training at her family's struggling rink. Jonah's driven, talented, going for the Olympics in speed skating, completely annoying… and totally gorgeous. Between teasing Jonah, helping her best friend try out for roller derby, figuring out life as a normal teen and keeping the family business running, Olivia's got her hands full. But will rivalry bring her closer to Jonah, or drive them apart?

BREATHE

After being pressed into service as a nurse, seventeen-year-old Virginia discovers her innate talent, begins a clandestine romance with her father's Italian assistant, and learns what it truly means to be a modern woman during the Spanish Flu pandemic of 1918.

 

TANABATA WISH

Phoenix-native Skyler Doucet's plans with her BFF are ruined when her mom and Japanese stepfather move the entire family to Nagoya, Japan for the summer before her senior year. But when David Takamatsu, a biracial Japanese-American boy, invades Skyler's space (and her heart), this fish out of water in Japan starts to wonder if it's the pond back home that might be too small.
