Sarah Henning is a recovering journalist who has worked for the Palm Beach Post, Kansas City Star and Associated Press, among others. While in South Florida, Sarah lived and worked through five hurricanes, which gave her an extreme respect for the ocean. When not writing, she runs ultramarathons, hits the playground with her two kids and hangs out with her husband Justin, who doubles as her long-suffering IT department. Sarah lives in Lawrence, Kansas, which, despite being extremely far from the beach, happens to be pretty cool.

Sarah Henning recommends
Bad Like Us (2024)
Gabriella Lepore
"Gabriella Lepore's Bad Like Us is a juicy, claustrophobic entry into the canon of contemporary young adult thrillers. Short chapters, alternating points-of-view, interview snippets, and saved video confessions will have you racing through the pages of Bad Like Us, piecing together and peeling back the layers of this intricate who-done-it on a spring break gone wrong."
Belittled Women (2022)
Amanda Sellet
"If Nora Roberts wrote a YA Little Women retelling, this would be it. Brimming with effortless banter set against a satisfying slow-burn romance, Belittled Women is the very definition of a romantic comedy. Hilarious from page one, Amanda Sellet draws us into Jo Porter's waking nightmare: the never-ending carousel of life in a literal Little Women reenactment at her mother's roadside Kansas attraction. Living under the weight of her alternate life portraying 'Book Jo' and her family's expectations, our Jo can't wait to bust free, but what's holding her back might be what's been holding her together all this time."
Out of the Blue (2022)
Jason June
"OUT OF THE BLUE is a hilarious and heart-warming modern update of The Little Mermaid. Splashy, voicey, and prescient, this fish-out-of-water tale (pun intended) is the perfect rom-com to have in your beach bag this summer."
