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!

Aug 10, 2018

For this episode, Carrie and Jake discuss Britta Lundin's debut novel 'Ship It'. They also talk about experiences at conventions, their (fairly minor) encounters with fanfic, the weird pornographic banner that Jake's downstairs neighbors hung up on their porch, movies based on video games, and all manner of other things. Spoilers abound, so we recommend reading the book before listening!

Both hosts are pretty ignorant about fanfic, so if you're interested in learning about it, or are curious about some of the things we mentioned in the episode, here are some links:

In the next episode, we'll be discussing 'Seventeenth Summer' by Maureen Daly, which is sometimes referred to as the first young adult novel.
