First Draft with Sarah Enni

Lauren Strasnick, author of 16 Ways to Break a Heart (out now!) and Then You Were Gone, Nothing Like You, and Her and Me and You, talks about gift wrapping her young adults books out of embarrassment, admitting to being “so deeply lazy,” envying actors, and writers as gremlins.
