The Very Best of #VeryRealisticYA

twitter

This past weekend, at a little after 5 P.M. on Saturday night, John Hansen started musing about realistic YA characters. Frustrated with homework, he was wondering how YA characters out saving the world manage to even find the time. After suggesting his followers start tweeting out their own #VeryRealisticYA characters and stories, things quickly took off.

Authors like Scott Westerfield, The Bloggess, Zoraida Córdova, Saladin Ahmed, Kody Keplinger, Michelle Krys, and even our own Andrew Shaffer joined in the fun, while John left his trending hashtag to go work on an English paper. Which, as he said, was the truest example of #VeryRealisticYA.

Here are some of the best of the best from that hashtag. Enjoy!

 

And my personal favorite.
