Two authors come together to discuss finding love in LGBTQ young adult novels. Pulp by New York Times bestselling author Robin Talley is told in dual narratives, weaving together the lives of two young women connected across generations through the power of pulp fiction. Dahlia Adler describes the novel as a, “incredibly creative exploration of queer literary history." Burro Hills by Julia Lynn Rubin details a romance between two teen boys struggling to harness their identities in a world of poverty, drugs, and suffocating masculinity. YA Interrobang writes, “Are you a fan of The Outsiders and Perks of Being a Wallflower? Now imagine them mashed together. That’s what awaits you in Burro Hills.”
