Last fall, I wrote about my love for the recently released young adult novel Althea & Oliver. I was very lucky to parlay my love for that story into interviewing its author, Cristina Moracho, for the wonderful literary website and non-profit Late Night Library.
Head over here to check it out. She has a lot of great things to say about writing a young adult book, including, “It’s such a rich category, and it encompasses every genre, and there’s so much excellent writing, that to me the question isn’t so much why adult readers read YA books as it is why wouldn’t they.”
Also, I publicly confess to crying at the end of her book. So there’s that too.
