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!

Mar 7, 2019

For this episode, Carrie and Jake discuss The Owl Service by Alan Garner. Along the way, Jake sings a tribute to a listener named RobertTheBruceWayne, Carrie reveals whether she would rather be an owl or flowers, and we struggle with Welsh names (sorry).

In the next episode, we'll be discussing American Born Chinese by Gene Luen Yang.
