YA Don't Say...
YA, YA, YA.
Or, young adult, young adult, young adult.
It's one of the hottest trends. Think Hunger Games, Divergent, Twilight, 13 Reasons Why. The 100, Starcrossed, Vampire Diaries, The Perks of Being a Wallflower.
Whether it's book, TV, or movie, everyone is reading or watching or talking about young adult stories. This is good for me, as a writer of YA, but some people think "I can't read/watch YA, I'm too old, I'm an adult with a job/kids/responsibilities...." yada yada. Since when is anyone too old to read a good story? By that logic, I'm too young to read anything with people older than me.
A good story can transport you back, make you feel younger again.
But don't go too far.
Those moms with Edward Cullen tattooed on their backs is just a little creepy...
So enjoy a good YA story.
Let me tell you about Blonde OPS...
