In Episode 17 of Parra Pods, Katherine & Nisa discuss some of the amazing Young Adult fiction books they have read over the last couple of weeks.
Reading Youth Adult fiction in all its diversity is great way to understand the issues facing the up and coming generation. The books that we review in this episode discuss diverse themes such as “Black lives matter”, growing up Muslim in Australia, body issues and being young and LGBTQ identified. What these wonderful books have in common is that they are all thought provoking, funny at times, often inspiring and always entertaining. I urge you to grab a YA book now and enjoy!
Some of the books discussed in this podcast include:
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas, 2017.
How (Not) to Ask a Boy to the Prom by S.J. Goslee, 2019.
You Must Be Layla by Yassmin Abel-Magied, 2019
There’s Something About Sweetie by Sandhya Menon
