Teen fiction has a new heroine. Cathy Brett, who should be no stranger to anyone, Brett is on her fourth novel, swept in this week with a great article in The Guardian defending artwork in teen fiction.
“Don’t get me wrong. I liked words. I liked reading. No, I love reading. But I really love pictures too and I don’t mind telling you that the day I discovered grown-up books didn’t have pictures was shocking. I wanted my toast with butter… and marmalade.”
Can’t recommend any stronger that fans of YA/Teen fiction, or anyone, read what Brett has to say. And, while you’re getting busy, check out her Everything is Fine (and other lies I tell myself).
