Hey, my name is Katie. I write different kinds of things and make zines and books. You may have come to this blog from my website The La-La Theory. If not, that's where you can go to read some of my work. This place here is where I post updates on writing I've published and events I'm participating in, plus whatever else I feel like talking about, which increasingly includes a lot of nonsense. my spleen.
Okay, this book is fantastic. It’s a YA book I read to review it for the Inquirer and I don’t want to give too much away, but I do want to recommend it to you. It’s one of the rare books I read for work that I continued to read at like, bedtime, because I wanted to. I got all excited when I saw a still from this trailer, thinking they’d made a movie out of it, but no, book trailers are a thing now.
My review of Beth Kephart’s new YA novel is in today’s Inquirer. I loved the book. I’ve read a few of Kephart’s other books and they are always so beautiful. This one transcends both its subject matter (historical fiction about a young teenage boy in 1870s Philadelphia) and genre, but she deals with both effectively. It reads like a classic, and I highly recommend it for readers of all ages.
