#YALC | Wrap Up

Young Adult Lit Con| Wrap Up
This is my second year attending YALC, but I didn’t make any posts about it last year because I felt so very overwhelmed and focused on my blog move. This year I’m already on my second. Will there be a third? Possibly.

I do highly recommend going, even if its just for one day!

“Tell me that and we’ll go. Right now. Save ourselves and leave this place to burn. Tell me that’s how you want your story to go and we’ll write it straight across the sand.”

Dustwalk is an unforgiving, dead-end town. It’s not the place to be poor or orphaned or female. And yet Amani Al’Hiza must call it ‘home’.

Amani wants to escape and see the world she’s heard about in campfire stories.
