We've done our homework and we're ready to chat about books that we've both hyped up and ACTUALLY finished. It’s our much-in-demand homework report episode!

We’re providing updates on texts that we briefly discussed at the top of the show over the last few months in order to let you know if they're worth your time.

We also address managing expectations for an author’s new & different work when you’ve loved their past texts, pondering the correct entry point to get into Adam Silvera’s writing, struggling with Netflix’s creative decisions as Disney+ looms on the horizon and the need for YA to step up and address abortion, especially at this crucial moment in time. Plus: giggles from Brenna’s toddler and sirens outside Joe’s downtown apartment!
