Young Adult Friction

On this episode of The Desk Set, we’re talking about two 10 to Try categories that have more overlap than you might think: Read a Banned (or Challenged) Book and Read a Young Adult Book. We chat with young adult author/superstar Marissa Meyer about her new series, Renegades, the power of fairytale retellings, and which Sailor Scout she wants to be. Then, we talk about banned books, including… (more)

3 Teen Romance Books with Mystery Letter Writers

While there are often big publishing trends—Dystopias! Superheroes! Thrillers with the word "girl" in the title!—sometimes you come across much smaller, often coincidental, trends. I read three books recently that all shared a plot point in common. This was an entirely unintentional reading choice, but made for an interesting comparison. These three recently published teen romance novels all … (more)

When Lily scribbles some graffiti on top of the desk to combat her boredom in chemistry class, she's surprised to find a reply the next day and even more surprised when the answers continue.

In love with this book, I related to the main character and the story gave my butterflies.

Lily and a mysterious person start writing to each other - first on a desk, and then complete letters. Lily starts falling for the letter writer - but who is she really writing to?

Very sweet, funny (a mistake of mine was trying to read it when I ate my cereal with milk - this food is very tricky to hold into the mouth when you are laughing out loud)), cute and just nice.
I want to reread it someday. :)

Kasie West captures the world of adolescents without the swearing, sex or drugs. A sweet story of love. Lily likes Lucas, Isabel is her best friend and Cade is her longtime enemy. Lily starts communicating via secret letters with an unknown person during Chemistry (different classes) They share a love of music and start sharing their inner most feelings and problems and joke about writing a song together. When all is revealed, Lily is blown away but starts to realize her feelings and ideas have started moving in a different direction.

At this point I am a sucker for a good Kasie West book! She writes fun realistic teen fiction that is light-hearted and will make you go "awwww!" all without being too cheesy :) In this book the main character (Lily) scribbles some song lyrics on a desk, and someone in another hour finishes the lyrics and writes her a note! Soon Lily has a full on pen pal and possibly a new crush. I know, sounds clique, but I thought it was engaging and well written.

This book was a really cute romance novel. The characters were fun-loving and sweet. It was nice to see the main characters go from sworn enemies to desperate lovers.

This book kept me on my toes the entire time, and I read this in one sitting not able to put it down! It has a cute romance to it but keeps you wanting to read more. Definitely recommend to read!

A cute, simple, and easy YA read when you need a cute, simple, and easy YA read.

As far as gushy Rom-Com teeny bopper books go, this was done excellently! It had a "You've Got Mail" vibe, and the characters were solid!

Lily and Cade have been sworn enemies for longer than they can remember and are constantly scrutinizing each other. One day, after Lily scribbled some song lyrics on her desk out of boredom the day prior, she found that someone has replied to her. As these conversations continued to develop, Lily finds herself bonding more and more with her pen pal. Chemistry, her once most hated class, soo became the highlight of her day and was always looking forward to it. But curiosity killed the cat and once she found out who her mystery writer was, she starts to question all she knew about him. This was a pure love story that showed us how sweet high school love can be. I enjoyed the concept of writing lyrics in desks and having someone reply to them and I really liked the dynamic balance between the two main characters. Their personalities were very sweet and real, yet different. Overall, I loved this book and hope to read more from this author Rating: 5/5

Such a cute story! Lily isn’t what you would call mainstream, she has her own style. Living in a family of five other people, her life gets pretty hectic. While spacing out in chemistry class one day, Lily writes some lyrics to her favourite indie band on her desk and the next day another person finishes the lyrics. They start to exchange letters about their personal life: family, friends, music and jokes. Lily finds herself telling this person things about herself that she doesn't even tell her best friend.
Told through story and exchanged letters, you really get to understand Lily and her anonymous pen pal. This story is amazing because it's relatable and you never expect the second writer to be who they are. Rating 5 out 5 stars.
