Keeping It Real Author Chat!

Simone Elkeles, Katie McGarry, and Ellen Hopkins

Together! Live on Figment!

Not all YA books are about fairy tales and princesses, or even worlds in the distant past and not-so-distant future. Some of our favorite books are set right here, right now, and deal with the problems that right-here-right-now teens face!

Gang violence? Drug addiction? Restraining orders? Sex?!

New York Times bestselling authors Simone Elkeles (Rules of Attraction) and Ellen Hopkins (Perfect) aren’t afraid to cover hot topics with their teen readers. This isn’t some fantasy land: It’s the real world.

Join us on Figment on Thursday, August 16 at 7 p.m. ET as these two YA writers dish about writing edgy teen fiction with first-time novelist Katie McGarry (author of the buzzed about Pushing the Limits). Cursing, controversial subject matter, writing kissing scenes—they’ll cover it all. And during the second half of the chat, they’ll be taking questions from readers.
