What's Up in YA

😊 All The YA Book Talk Your Heart Desires

Hey YA readers! Let’s talk books.

“What’s Up in YA?” is sponsored by Penguin Teen Canada.

Poppy used to be an optimist. But after being publicly fat-shamed, she’s having trouble seeing the good in the world. As a result, Poppy trades her beloved vintage clothes for a feathered chicken costume and accepts a job as an anonymous sign waver outside a restaurant. Cam, her twin brother, who is adjusting to life as an openly gay teen; Buck, a charming photographer with a cute British accent and a not-so-cute mean-streak; and Lewis a teen caring for an ailing parent, while struggling to reach the final stages of his gender transition.

It’s been a month of great book talk over on Book Riot. Let’s settle in and catch up. Grab your TBR list because chances are, it won’t be getting smaller!

Thanks for hanging out, and we’ll see you again later this week for a dive into the latest in YA news.
