Please, please stop hyping Cory Doctorow’s Little Brother. You’re making it sound like you’ve never read YA science fiction before, which seems unlikely since some of you write it. It’s the most inspiring book ever written! I get it! I’ll read it already! But shut up about it before the mere mention of the book makes me want to roll my eyes.
Oh wait. Too late.
Love n’ kisses,
P.S. The attendant discussion of YA sections in bookstores, and the fabbity fabness of YA lit in general, is of course well worth having, and gets a big thumbs up here at Parenthetical Headquarters. I’m just contrary enough to decide to dislike something in direct proportion to how much people tell me it’s the best thing ever. (Fans of The Wire, take note.)
