Blog Tour: Salvation by Anne Osterlund

                                                            Goodreads    Website   

Book Description:
   A smart, unexpected romance from an award-winning author.

Salvador Resendez--Salva to his friends--appears to have it all. His Mexican immigrant family has high expectations, and Salva intends to fulfill them. He's student body president, quarterback of the football team, and has a near-perfect GPA. Everyone loves him.

Especially Beth Courant, AKA the walking disaster area. Dreamy and shy, Beth is used to blending into the background. But she's also smart, and she has serious plans for her future.

Popular guy and bookish girl--the two have almost nothing in common. Until fate throws them together and the attraction is irresistible. Soon Beth is pushing Salva to set his sights higher than ever--because she knows he has more to offer, more than even he realizes.

Then tragedy strikes--and threatens to destroy everything that Salva has worked for. Will Beth's love be enough to save him?

Thoughtful and romantic, this is a beautifully written story about following your heart and fulfilling your potential.

As I am writing this, I am 
snowed in by five inches of lovely white powder. And yet, I am in the midst of a 40-stop blog tour.Oh, and Kirkus just reviewed Salvation as “touching” and “believable.” Quite a lovely way to be snowed-in! 
What inspired you to write "Salvation"?I first met Salva and Beth in the middle of a collision. Papers, pencils, the contents of Beth’s backpack, and point of view everywhere! I didn’t realize there was an entire book coming, though, until Salva’s best friend, Pepe, shoved him into the prologue. 
What character did you like to write about the most?Are you trying to start a war in my head? LOL! I tend to switch point of view between the two main characters in my novels. This means whenever it’s more fun to write in the other character’s pov, I can.
Your favorite scene to write?
Hmm. This changes throughout various drafts. A few scenes that I love in Salvation: Beth at the graveyard.Salva at the Laundromat. All the scenes in the Homecoming chapter. The barbecue scene (in which Salva’s older sister gets to butt into in his life). The melting ice cream scene. Beth in search of strawberry shortcake. And on and on and on. 

Your favorite books published in 2012?Cinder by Marissa Meyer and Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore. My favorite new read of the year, though, was Touch of Power by Maria V. Snyder. For contemporary fiction, I really enjoyed Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally, Crazy Beautiful by Lauren Baratz-Logstead, and Just Listen by Sarah Dessen.

  1. Oh I've seen this book around, but never really knew what it was about. It sounds great, also I'm really liking the cover! Thanks for sharing a great interview with us! :)

  2. Like Jasprit, I didn't really know what this book was about until now, despite having seen the cover around. It sounds great. And a Kirkus starred review too? Brilliant! I will have to check this one out. :)

  3. I've seen this book around and it looks really good!
