What's Up in YA

Your YA Book News and New Books: November 19, 2020

Hey YA Readers!

I hope you’re taking good care of yourselves. I suspect you have all gotten fifteen thousand emails starting the same way, and I emphasize that each one really means it, including this one. I’ve found myself really relishing taking weekends off to do nothing but read, put together puzzles, listen to audiobooks, and clean the house (it feels like a nice thing to have control over!). I hope you’re doing something similar that helps refill your well while keeping you safe.

Let’s take a look at this week’s YA news and new YA books. As we tumble into the end of the year, these roundups will continue to get smaller. All the more time for catching up, right?
