Issue number SIX!
What a summer it’s been, but we’ve emerged from the hellish heat with only a few minor burns and we’re ready to launch this issue. We’ve got Chloe Seager talking about friendships online and offline, a report from YALC and an exclusive interview with the four new voices in Stripes’ PROUD anthology.
We also caught up with Nikesh Shukla, got Alice Oseman to answer our burning questions and reviewed many a book including Clean by Juno Dawson, Floored, AND we also talk about a podcast taking the YA world by storm and ponder whether calling A Monster Calls at the Old Vic “a treat” is quite right, given we cried for three hours.
