What's Up in YA

📽️ You Will Be Seeing So Much YA On Screen Soon

Hey YA Readers! Let’s catch up on YA news.

“What’s Up in YA?” is sponsored by Epic Reads.

At the Medio School for Girls, distinguished young women are trained for one of two roles in their polarized society.

Daniela Vargas is the school’s top student, but her pedigree is a lie. She must keep the truth hidden or be sent back to the fringes of society.

And school couldn’t prepare her for the difficult choices she must make after graduation, especially when she is asked to spy for a resistance group desperately fighting to bring equality to Medio.

Will Dani cling to the privilege her parents fought to win for her, or will she give up everything she’s strived for in pursuit of a free Medio—and a chance at a forbidden love?

The summer is a quieter time for news in the book world, but here’s what’s been going on and is worth a read. This is heavy on adaptation news, which is neat to see (I mean — the more YA adaptations we get, the better, right?).
