From the Notebook: YA vs. Academia

Hey there guys! This video is something that is near and dear to my heart: my thoughts on how college can treat YA literature. I want to be clear: I 1000% believe that YA should be criticized. However, that’s the point. In my experience, YA is often brushed aside and treated as something that is always bad, therefore telling people that YA can be and should be bad. I really, really wanted to change that.

Cover Reveal: “Perception” by Lee Strauss

You guys know how I love my cover eye candy. Well, boy do I have some gorgeousness to share with you today! But first, check out the synopsis so you can see JUST HOW AWESOME this book sounds and why you should be excited for the cover!

Seventeen year old Zoe Vanderveen is a GAP—agenetically altered person. She lives in the security of a walled city on primewater-front property along side other equally beautiful people with extended life spans.

Her brother Liam is missing.

Noah Brody is a natural who lives on the outside. He leads protests against the GAPs and detests the widening chasm they’ve created between those who have and those who don’t. He doesn’t like girls like Zoe and he has good reason not to like her specifically.

Zoe’s carefree life takes a traumatic turn.  She’s in trouble and it turns out that Noah, the last guy on earth she should trust, is the only one who can help her.

Now that you’re properly excited. LET’S DO THIS!
