    Book Club: 'Squad' by Maggie Tokuda-Hall (Writer) and Lisa Sterle (Artist)

    The YA book club returns with this Halloween-themed graphic novel from author Maggie Tokuda-Hall and artist Lisa Sterle.

    When Becca starts at a new school, the last thing she expects is to make friends with a pack of cool-girl werewolves. Entering their vicious world brings confidence and power, but it also sets Becca on a slippery slope that leaves her questioning her decision to join the pack at all.

    Join our Halloween-themed book club!

    Join our Halloween-themed book club!

    The podcast might be winding down at the end of the year, but we're still planning to fit in a couple more book club discussions, starting with a special Halloween-themed pick!

    This month we're reading a graphic novel: Squad by Maggie Tokuda-Hall, illustrated by Lisa Sterle.

    Here's what you need to know from the blurb:

    Pretty Little Liars meets Teen Wolf in this sharply funny, and patriarchy-smashing graphic novel from author Maggie Tokuda-Hall and artist Lisa Sterle.

    When the new girl is invited to join her high school’s most popular clique, she can’t believe her luck—and she can’t believe their secret, either.

    When Becca transfers to a high school in an elite San Francisco suburb, she’s worried she’s not going to fit in. To her surprise, she’s immediately adopted by the most popular girls in school. At first glance, Marley, Arianna, and Mandy are perfect. But at a party under a full moon, Becca learns that they also have a big secret.

    Becca’s new friends are werewolves. Their prey? Slimy boys who take advantage of unsuspecting girls. Eager to be accepted, Becca allows her friends to turn her into a werewolf, and finally, for the first time in her life, she feels like she truly belongs.

    But then things get complicated. As their pack begins to buckle under the pressure, their moral high ground gets muddier and muddier—and Becca realizes that she might have feelings for one of her new best friends.

    -----

    The book club discussion will be released at the end of next week — just in time for the Halloween weekend!

So fun to listen to!

I’m a ya fantasy author, and I love the perspective these avid readers put on the industry! Their thoughts are great to take into consideration as I develop new stories. I’ve learned that constant study and listening to fans makes for much improved writing skills, and this podcast is a blast to listen too!
