Growing up is all about making choices and dealing with the fallout, but for the protagonists in the latest novels by these three YA rockstars, the stakes are incredibly high. In A Line in the Dark, the latest novel by Morris Award and Lambda Literary Award finalist Malinda Lo, a young woman finds herself enmeshed in tangled loyalties and knotty secrets...and then the murders begin. In Printz Award and National Book Award finalist E. Lockhart’s cinematic thriller Genuine Fraud, a young woman decides to reclaim the roles available to her, no matter the personal toll her choices take. And Andre Norton and Morris Award finalist Kristin Cashore’s inventive, genre-defying standalone Jane, Unlimited is all about choices, taking its inspiration from classic Choose Your Own Adventure novels. If you choose to attend this session (and trust us, you should!), you’ll hear a lively conversation moderated by Simmons College’s Lauren Rizzuto. Sponsored by Simmons College.
