Hey YA Fans: Let’s catch up on the last month of bookish talk and upgrade our TBRs even more.
“What’s Up in YA?” is sponsored by Anger Is A Gift by Mark Oshiro from Tor Books.
But sometimes Moss still wishes he could be someone else—someone without panic attacks, someone whose father was still alive, someone who hadn’t become a rallying point for a community because of one horrible night.
And most of all, he wishes he didn’t feel so stuck.
When tensions hit a fever pitch and tragedy strikes again, Moss must face a difficult choice: give in to fear and hate or realize that anger can actually be a gift.
