“In Kara, Lost, Susan Niz's wonderful eye for detail and uncanny insight bring a troubled teenager's world to life. Kara's fierce determination to forge her own path in life and the challenges she faces on every front ring true. So true, in fact, that at times I wanted to put down the book and go find that girl and give her a home. A masterful debut.”
-Alison McGhee, Minnesota Book Award Winner
“Smart as hell. A suspenseful ride on the dark side made particularly compelling because of its fearless-fearful heroine. This is a great book!”
-David Housewright, Minnesota Book Award Winner
“It’s very compelling—Kara is so alone and so abandoned. Harrowing! I was terribly worried about her welfare.”
-Julie Schumacher, Author of Black Box
"Kara’s complex story still haunts me. Kara, Lost is powerful."
-Kirstin Cronn-Mills, Author of The Sky Always Hears Me: And the Hills Don’t Mind
