Even if it all begins with a meet/cute, worlds will be rocked. Find out more about Birdie, Bash and their inevitable collision in this week’s installment of First Reads Friday!
Today marks just over the halfway point of Scholastic’s I Read YA Week. This year’s theme is What Does YA Stand For? For us, it means Limitless Boundaries. We have expanded our world beyond the scope of our friendship. We have met and fallen in love with fierce characters, traveled across the universe, to new lands, and made friends all over the globe in the YA community. Today, we look back on the our bookish adventures and how we’ve expanded our boundaries, we tell you the history of how we immersed ourselves in YA, plus we swap books with each other!
