Every day aboard the interstellar ship Australia is hell, where no one is safe. The Australia is filled with murderous gangs and twisted cults, vying for supremacy. Fierce and self-sufficient, Chan has learned to avoid the mayhem but then she makes an extraordinary discovery–there may be a way to return to Earth. But doing so will bring her to the attention of the murderers and fanatics, putting her and everyone she loves in danger.

YA lovers, there’s no need to explain much to this post. These are tote bags you can own that will show off your immense love of YA books and reading.

They are perfect for carrying those books, too, obvs.



This one is for those of us who lean on the “A” part of “YA.” No shame in a great adult YA reading game.




Pretty straightforward.




Perhaps you want to go a little bolder and a little louder with this YA-themed cinch bag.
