Recently at Kirkus Reviews...

...I covered Rebecca Stead's Goodbye Stranger:

It deals with social media, with cellphones, with the ease with which we can both take pictures and share them. It deals with slut-shaming, as carried out by peers and as quietly supported and condoned by adults, and it deals with the conflicting messages that we as a society send to young women—to be proud of yourself, to love your body…but also to hide it away. It’s very much set in the present, but it feels lasting and timeless, because of the tone, because of the quality, because of the depth.

I ALSO rounded up a list of summer camp books in honor of the return of Wet Hot American Summer AND I pulled together a list of some of the new YA coming out in August.
