You Are Not Alone, Interview with Victoria Lee

It’s never good to generalize a group of people, but unfortunately, people still do it anyway. There are times when doing so is obviously harmful, but there are also times when it may seem completely harmless. Authors are a great example of this.

When someone meets an author, odds are, they’ll assume they’re a shy introvert. They’ll also assume they’ve always loved reading and writing and have dreamed of seeing their novels on the shelves of bookstores ever since they were a child. That might be the case for a lot of authors, but Victoria Lee is proof that they’re not all the same.

On the Brink of Perfection, Interview with Arwen Elys Dayton

"Perfection has a way of getting ugly.” That statement ends the jacket blurb for
Stronger, Faster, and More Beautiful, sucking us right into Arwen Elys Dayton’s latest release. The author of the Seeker series and Resurrection is back, with a rapid-paced, YA sci-fi novel that explores the lengths we’re willing go in the name of self-improvement. Told in six related stories, Dayton leads us farther and farther into a future where science has the ability to transform us and redefine what it means to be human.

“This book can be thought of as an anthology because it’s got these sections, but they tell one complete story—there’s one character that acts as a throughline and ties them together,” Dayton explained. Structuring her novel like this let her grapple with the different aspects of a complicated subject: human genetic modification.

Resiliency in YA Lit

One of the main differences between YA lit and adult fiction is hope. However dark young adult novels get—and some are dark enough that we crave night vision goggles—a ray of hope filters through the pages.

Resilience is a life skill that we all need, but it’s not something we’re specifically taught in school. Thankfully, humans have always drawn life lessons from art and that’s true of YA lit, too. The sheer doggedness displayed by the characters populating these books provide us with a well of inspiration for getting through the rough stuff.

Fiction Food | “The Fever King” & “Stronger, Faster, and More Beautiful”

“When Noam was a kid and felt picky about chocking down gefilte fish on Pesach […].

[…] You just consumed your body weight in bourbon. […] Noam respected food […] but his stomach rebelled against every bite of porridge. […] He wasn’t that familiar with whiskey, but a double-oaked bourbon sounded like a pretty big deal.”

We were in the front seats, with a cardboard tray of tacos between us […].

[…] I look at them as I eat my turkey and mashed potatoes. This is my favorite meal […] especially when it comes to cranberry sauce. […] The flavor of apple pie has been added to mask all the other flavors—of medicine, of vitamins, of cell-boosting concoction […] In all it is a kind of Thanksgiving meal. […] Jake grabbed hold of it long enough to see pineapple-flavored vodka on the label […].
