I’ll give you one word: raw.
There’s something fragile and explicit about being a teenager. It’s like every emotion is magnified to the point of it bearing down and paralyzing you. I remember how one kiss could make me float and one forgotten call could bury me in pain.
Reading YA takes me back to those days where life was full of intensity. Now, I worry about grocery lists, work deadlines, and if my family is well. I miss the days when I daydreamed about everything and wasn’t concerned with rent.
There are so many good YA books that take me to different lands and fill me with dizzying emotions. Diving into those reads makes me feel young and adventurous, dangerous even, and for a few hours, I forget everything.
