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!

Sep 3, 2021

Who have two thumbs and an opinion about Stephanie Perkins's new YA horror novel, 'The Woods Are Always Watching'? Jake and Carrie do! Welcome to a new HOT TAKE SPECIAL, in which Jake speculates that Jon Arbuckle (of Garfield fame)'s old roommate was a serial killer, and Carrie points out a downside to stickshifts that many might overlook.

The episode (and the book) has some kind of graphic descriptions of body trauma, so be aware of that. Also we definitely describe the plot in some detail. Spoilers ahoy!
