Literary analysis and discussion of the YA Fiction genre from two literature-loving sisters! We update every Thursday, and leave clues all over social media so that you can try to decipher which book we'll discuss next!
Episode 12: Juvenile Delinquents Turn Heroes
This week in our Season 1 Finale, we'll be discussing "The Outsiders" by S.E. Hinton! This book is near and dear to both of our hearts. We really loved revisiting and analyzing this book!
Episode 11: State Enforcer Rumored to be Dating Foreign Prince
This week we discuss "Graceling" by Kristin Cashore. This is Cashore's debut novel.
Episode 10: Young Boy Meets His Hero, and Isn't Dissapointed
This week we're discussing "The Book of Three" by Lloyd Alexander! This book series is a house favorite --Jessicca was especially excited to talk about it. The audio on this one may be a bit wonky, it seems that it went through a bit of corruption (much like the Horned King!). Give us a listen!
Episode 9: News Article Shapes Plot, but is Further Research Needed?
This week we discuss "Homeless Bird" by Gloria Whelan! This book was a favorite of ours when we were younger, but re-reading it and doing our research for the podcast may have tainted our view of this book a little. Give us a listen, and check us out on social media to further the conversation!
Episode 8: Is it Lights-Out for this Small Town?
This week we're discussing the "City of Ember" by Jeanne DuPrau! This book is definitely a first step into an allegory of the cave story, and has a really interesting setting. Give us a listen, and let us know what you think!
Episode 7: Accused Warden's Story Full of Holes
This week, we're discussing the beloved book "Holes" by Louis Sacher! This book is such a classic, and we're going to talk about why. Yes, some consider this to be a children's book and some consider it to be young adult fiction, we'll talk about that in the episode.
Check us out on social media to continue the conversation, or to guess our next book!
