To round out Pride Month Shayna and Kathy are joined by Shelby Bouck to discuss queer representation in Young Adult Literature. Shelby has a Masters degree in library and information science is a voracious reader and is obsessed with YA literature.
Randomly, we have mild spoilers for the 2003 thriller, Identity.
100% of the profits from the sale of any of our Pride Merchandise will be donated to the Trevor Project to provide support for the mental health of LGBTQ+ youth.

Shelby has a Bachelor's in creative writing from Florida State University and a Master's degree in library and information science from University of South Florida. She's currently working on her first (deeply queer) novel 200 words at a time. When she's not working or writing, she's probably reading queer fantasy and sci-fi novels or playing an absurdly long story-based video game, with a cat no less than three feet away at all times.
