Book Review: Counting by 7s by Holly Goldberg Sloan

I’ll be honest – I’m usually not a fan of realistic young adult or middle grade fiction. This may sound shallow, but I find it hard to read books that are just about characters or people. 378 more words


Mockingjay: Why I Write YA

I write YA because young people are our last hope. That teenage girl you made fun of for her Iron Man t-shirt, the one you called vapid and silly, she’s going to save your life one day. 480 more words
