I am late, late, late 24-hours late! But that is OK because it is Andrew Smith! I am sure he will forgive me, right Andrew? Wait, what am I late for? Today, well I am writing it on the 2nd so technically when this posts it will be yesterday but still… 100 Sideways Miles is right! Anyway, Andrew’s 8th novel is here, finally!!! I happen to be one of the lucky wenches who will be touring and creating graphics for said tour in October but I could not let release day go by without going.. eep! eep! woot!

Y is for Young Adult Reads & Some of my Favorites #AtoZChallenge

Those who have read my blog before knows how much I want to strangle folks who label their books young adult half the time. Indie authors are very guilty of doing this to books and assume because a book has a young protagonist that it makes it a young adult read. So wrong it is not funny.

spell-fire-tour-300x199Young-Adult fiction should be written so a young adult can read and relate.
