Revis’s Across the Universe trilogy takes readers from a starship a couple of centuries […]
As Stephen Colbert said, “a young adult novel is a regular novel that people actually read.” So no need to feel guilty about indulging in Isla and the Happily Ever After, the just-published YA romance by local author Stephanie Perkins.
