This blog is a conversation. If you’re an educator, librarian, or someone in publishing who hopes to support the paths of immigrant youth readers, I’d be more than happy to get in touch. Message me here, or tweet me at @lapiaenrose.

To 7th-12th grade YA readers: You are intelligent. You have important insights. Odds are I’m not that much older than you either, and you can teach me a lot. If you’d like to publish an article, essay, or book review on Intrepid YA, email me and let’s make it happen. If you have any other thoughts, tweet or message me too!
