It’s Week 1 of New Reads November 2021! This year, we’re kicking things off with a conversation about You Have a Match by Emma Lord. This 2021 title — which combines serious Parent Trap vibes with influencer culture and mail-in DNA tests — was selected for Reese’s YA Book Club, which is a pretty big deal! On Episode 168, Alli and her guest discuss queer rep, portrayals of social media and technology in literature, and how much is “too much” in a novel. They also chat about the golden age of YA!
