||CleanEpisode 34: The Thorn Necklace by Francesca Lia Block||Happy 2019, Wayfinders! January was a heck of a year, but we still want to celebrate some sunshine and self help and return to a favorite author. It’s going to get meta up in here, while we talk KonMari, the Unicorn Club, writerly obsessions, playing 12 Questions with our WIP, and self help writer gossip. In this episode Content NotesThis is a book about the oeuvre of Francesca Lia Block, so everything present in her books is present here: parent death, grief, eating disorders, mental and physical illness, miscarriage, terrible boys and terrible men, rape culture, antisemitism. There’s also a long rumination on David Bowie and his influence on the author’s writing and art, so caveat lector. Show NotesParasol Protectorate Fan Group Heavenly Creatures Francesca Lia Block’s 12 Questions to Help Structure Your Novel, around which the book itself is structured Julia Cameron Wants You to Do Your Morning Pages Happy Birthday Judy Blume!

||CleanEpisode 33: The Devil Went Down to Minneapolis: Juniper, Gentian, and Rosemary by Pamela Dean||Happy new year readers and listeners! Tonight we visit a grand fall and winter-y read with spooky Ouija parties, nerd girls uniting against the patriarchy, astronomy in abundance and, of course, the worst boy. (There’s a really excellent New Year’s Eve party in this book!) What dangers lurk when the neighbor asks us to build a time machine? Should we really read our sister’s journal? In this episode, there are several thousand words about a slumber party.

||CleanEpisode 31: Bras and Broomsticks by Sarah Mlynowski||Bras and Broomsticks: Goodreads, Worldcat, Indiebound, Author Website Sarah Mlynowski: Website, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, Wattpad, Facebook Content NotesOur first (and sadly not last) appearance of the Unfortunate Transphobia Bear—it’s a couple lines, but a couple lines that would do well to be edited out in 2018. This is a book that gets REAL about relationships with step-parents, conflict between adults and kids, and kids seeing their parents as human for the first time. We appreciate it, good to know going in. Forward March is here! Love, loss, and the surprising aphrodisiacs of the band locker room. That’s what the Dulaney High marching band has in store for Meghan Riggins. Like her Gram, who’s been her biggest fan since that first trombone lesson, Meghan’s always loved making music. So marching band should be easy, right? Wrong. It’s hard enough staying upright during the halftime show, avoiding the worst of the upperclassmen, or remembering the difference between a cummerbund and a dickie. But then she falls for Jonah, an adorkable fellow trombone nerd who just happens to be her best friend’s brother. Meghan may need to rethink everything she knows about herself, in and out of band, with and without her family and friends, and in and out of love. Both witty and poignant, Forward March will have you laughing, swooning, and cheering from the stands. Find Forward March by Carey Farrell at your favorite online bookseller! Source: BBC Two The very spookiest bat Per our query in the podcast: Sarah Mlynowski has two sisters—she’s in between the two!—and Bras and Broomsticks takes a lot of inspiration from real life.

||CleanEpisode 31: Moon Boots and Terrible Boys: Alice, I Think by Susan Juby||We’re back, minus a few cup sizes! (The opposite of a lot of YA trajectories, but such is life.) Discussion Alice, I Think by Susan Juby was super fun, especially since Carey and Rie had radically different stances…that shifted over the course of the episode. Just like a good mood ring. Oh, Canada, my Canada, did we mention the fashion in this one? The small-town snark? Oh, and the moose? Wait, that’s book three.

||CleanEpisode 30: The Pigman by Paul Zindel||Happy 30th Episode everybody! Our scrappy little episode enters the decade of wine, Netflix, and cats/dogs with a Hometown Read from Host Rie. Take the Staten Island Ferry and actually disembark for a tale of two ungrateful teenagers and the sweetest old man in the world. We talk high school shenanigans, kids these days, and assigned reading while lamenting the fate of the Pigman. Oops. Unless you had it as assigned reading. The Pigman: Goodreads Paul Zindel: Website Content NotesOh boy. Terrible parents, elder abuse, grief, horrible 1960s zoos, casual and not-so-casual homophobia. Host Rie also rags on her hometown a bunch. It deserves it.

||CleanEp. 28: John Waters on a Kinetic Poodle: How to Say Goodbye in Robot by Natalie Standiford||Are you out there? Can you hear us? We kick off our Hometown Series with Carey's Baltimore read, How to Say Goodbye in Robot by Natalie Standiford. A boy, a girl, and a bond over weirdos calling into a radio show to laugh, live, and ride a magic carpet over Ocean City while surviving some very harsh truths about growing up. We discuss the strangeness of big cities and small fandoms, as well as solving the public transit problem in Baltimore (see: title).

||CleanAntihero's Journey: The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart||Somebody put a bra on the library dome! It's not a 90s comedy middle grade book; it's The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart. Join us for chat about art as protest, why girls should treat girls with respect, and what YA character we think will head the CIA. The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks: Goodreads E. Lockhart: website Content NotesThis is a book that deals with internalized misogyny, textually, and gender essentialism. There's a lot of both. There are teen boys dressing femme as a joke, and a lot of humor circling around what genders have what configurations. It can be a heavy read. We would love to see a 10th anniversary edition with an intro from the author on how things have changed...and how they haven't.

Thrill to the 80s fashion and musical numbers! Practice sedate glamourbombing! Marc Acito: Website, Twitter, Blog How I Paid for College Attack of the Theater People Content WarningsWhere do we start? Book is from the point of view of an Italian-American bisexual teen in New Jersey in the early 80s. There's sexism, internalized homophobia, transphobia, racism, coercive sex, blackmail, drugging, underage drinking, terrible parents, and "creative vandalism"--aka making life terrible for retail workers. We talk about it more in the episode, so reader caveat, the honesty of the narrative means revealing the ugliness of being a suburban queer in the 80s. Remember book trailers? We love book trailers!

Lockhart||To celebrate International Women's Day, we're taking a look at all the ways we can be terrible to each other...and how we can break the cycles of oppression. Or, we're looking at the debut novel by E. Lockhart, discussing how life on a houseboat with a performance artist mom can prepare you for dating a sociopath and being shunned by the entire sophomore class.
