Love YA Like Crazy

Welcome to Love YA Like Crazy, where Carrie and Jake rant about young adult books. Beware, there are lots of spoilers and often lots of swearing!

Jun 2, 2016

For this episode, Carrie and Jake discuss 'Grasshopper Jungle', Andrew Smith's 2015 novel about the end of the world and the incredibly horny teenagers that help bring it about.

Also in this episode, we are attacked by cats, reveal our shameful Kurt Vonnegut-related secrets to each other, and talk about how awesome it would be to have a Lost-style Hatch to explore. Spoilers abound, so we recommend reading the book before listening!

We're going to release a bonus episode soon, in which we talk about a mediocre YA movie named 'Vampire Academy', and then, after that, we'll revisit Philip Pullman's excellent 'His Dark Materials' series by reading book 2 in that series, 'The Subtle Knife'.

We have a Goodreads group now! You can visit it at Comment there, or write to us at podcast at We'd love to hear from you!

Thanks to Shaenon K. Garrity for designing the Love YA Like Crazy icon, to the Sentimental Favorites for the use of their song 'Hey There', and to Charlie McCarron for the 'Love YA Like Crazy' tag. This episode also features Jake's cover of the Flaming Lips song 'Waterbug'.
