Young Adult Reviews

Reading young adult (YA) fiction has been a passion of Kate's for many years and has strongly influenced her decision to write YA fiction. She frequently reviews YA novels by other authors which she receives through her website, Amazon Vine, and NetGalley. If you are the author of a currently published or soon-to-be-released YA novel and would like Kate to review it, she would be happy to hear about it. Our contact information is here.
