Author Love with Jannell and Jon

Author Love

Jannell: “When I read Laurie Halse Anderson I see people I know.  Her characters are raw, emotional, troubled, eccentric, hopeless, hopeful, uncertain, aware, attractive, plain, ordinary, surprising, and complicated.  In short, they are teenagers who grapple with real-life issues, and Anderson gives them a voice.  Which book should you read first?  I recommend Speak.  It changed my life and made me want to read again.”

Jon: “These are good books.  People should read them.”
