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!

Oct 25, 2016

In this episode, Carrie and Jake discuss Madeleine L'Engle's 1963 classic 'A Wrinkle in Time'. Among other things, we talk about death bats and Communism, and the lack of time travel in the books comes in for a certain amount of criticism. Spoilers abound, so we recommend reading the book before listening! An automatically generated transcript can be found at -- if you're interested in helping to improve it, then let us know.

In the next episode, we'll be discussing Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins, one of Carrie's favorite books.
