So as you may remember, I'm currently studying for my MA in Creative Writing at Sheffield Hallam. My particular interest is Young Adult literature and as part of the work that I've just handed in, I was suppoosed to reflect upon literature like my own. I know lots of YA books set in the US but fewer set in the UK, and I felt like I needed to know my contemporaries. But who ARE they? So I did what any sensible person would do and asked some librarians. I have three that I will turn to, and they all came up trumps.
£100 later and here we are:
Some of these are US based and are about music, like my novel, so I got them anyway. I've started Ostrich Boys, but I got distracted by Anne of Green Gables.
Have you read any of these? What should I read next?
