Someone's Secret (Guess Who!)

Critically acclaimed YA authors are spilling their guts here at Bildungsroman all month long. Today's guest says:

"I am a die-hard Jazzerciser. But that's not the secret (okay, that actually kind of is a secret). The secret, the confession, is that one day I went to Jazzercise within a few hours of a major emotional meltdown having to do with the pressure of...I don't know what all. Life, writing. That night, we learned a new routine to a Timbaland and Miley Cyrus song, We Belong To the Music, which is somehow this incredibly joyful yet shallow pop ditty. Dancing to that -- or should I say 'dancing' to that -- was such a release after a stressful day that I was actually moved to tears while doing my hip lifts. It was kind of awesome."

Who do you think this writer/Jazzerciser might be? I'll give you a hint: When I interviewed her back in 2007, she revealed that the working title for her first book was The Miracle of Life. The final title tells a different Story. Leave your guesses in the comments below!

To discover more secrets, bookmark the schedule and visit Bildungsroman every day through the end of June.

Identity revealed! Story of a Girl author Sara Zarr is a self-proclaimed die-hard Jazzerciser. Rock on, Sara!
