Brenna and Joe are under house arrest, so please be sure to decontaminate properly before you listen to this episode on Nicola Yoon's 2015 novel Everything, Everything and its accompanying 2017 film adaptation by Stella Meghie.

In all seriousness though: MEGA SPOILER WARNING - If you have not read the book and plan to, DO NOT LISTEN!!!

Brenna and Joe discuss why the format of both texts don't quite work, how the film wastes the likeability of gifted teen actors Amandla Stenberg (The Hate U Give) and Nick Robinson (Love, Simon) and why we need to become more comfortable with "own voices" narratives failing...or simply being fine.

In Homework news: Brenna pitches a new comic series byGiant Days writer John Allison, colourist Sarah Stern and letterer Jim Campbell while Joe ties the new Blumhouse horror film Ma into the discussion on Everything, Everything.
