Archives - Teenreads Monthly Update

Last week, I attended a dinner in celebration of young adult authors Ann Brashares (THE WHOLE THING TOGETHER, now in stores), Jennifer E. Smith (WINDFALL, out May 2nd), and Julie Buxbaum (WHAT TO SAY NEXT, out July 11th). You can see a photo of Jennifer, Julie and Ann above.

When I left off in our last newsletter, I was preparing for an all-night binge-fest of Netflix’s “13 Reasons Why." By midnight I realized that I am too old for a good old-fashioned all-nighter and crashed, but Saturday morning I was wide awake to finish the series. All I can say is WOW, Netflix totally nailed it. Reviewers agree with me that the casting is spot-on, the pacing is perfect, and best of all, the differences from the book are so minor that both recent readers and fans who haven’t read the book in years can enjoy it. If you haven’t watched yet, click here to see what the cast has to say about it.
