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!

Apr 15, 2015

For this episode, Carrie and Jake discuss the 1959 edition of a Nancy Drew book, "The Hidden Staircase" by Carolyn Keene, which is available in a variety of formats from Amazon and other booksellers.

Spoilers abound, so we recommend reading the book before listening. We discuss minuets, notaries, brother love, phantom fiancés, Benjamin Franklin, and we describe some possible alternative endings to the book. Swearing also abounds!

In the next episode, we'll be discussing Neal Shusterman's 2009 novel 'Unwind', which you should be able to get in a variety of formats from Amazon or the bookseller of your choice.

If you have any comments or suggestions, or have your own alternative Hidden Staircase endings to share, please join us on our facebook group at

Thanks to Shaenon K. Garrity for designing the Love YA Like Crazy icon, and to the Sentimental Favorites for the use of their song 'Hey There'.

The sound clip at the beginning of the episode is from the TV show Castle, specifically episode 9 of season 1, 'Little Girl Lost'.
