I’m always excited when I get the chance to interview an author on HelloGiggles, and this week’s post was ESPECIALLY exciting because I had the chance to interview fellow HelloGiggles writer and all-around awesome lady, Leila Howland. You can check out the interview here (and go read her book, Nantucket Blue!).

This week in Young Adult Education, I wrote about DC Pierson’s Crap Kingdom, a book that’s funny and strange and weird. You can check out the post on HelloGiggles if you’re so inclined!
I forgot to mention it last Saturday, but I was particularly proud of this week’s Young Adult Education column. I wrote about why I don’t think anything should be off-limits to teenagers, and why I think darker books can help both kids who are facing hard times and those who can’t. I kind of expected someone to disagree with me (I don’t know, maybe someone’s weird mom reads HelloGiggles?), but the commenters were all super cool people. Anyway, check it out if you’re interested, and I’ll have another column going up tomorrow.
Today on HelloGiggles, I wrote about Love and Other Perishable Items by Laura Buzo. I cover a lot of things in this one: relationships between 15 and 22 year olds, how little I know about Australia, the allure of older dudes, and that time I lived with my parents for 6 months and did nothing but watch Twin Peaks and crochet. All that and more in Young Adult Education!
For this week’s Young Adult Education column, I had the pleasure of interviewing author Laryssa Wirstiuk! We talked about writing, self-publishing, and other stuff. She’s great and you should check out the post!
