Is there a great YA author you constantly hear brilliant, wondrous words utilized to describe her work time and time again? An author you always mean to read but never get around to because of something called “life” getting in the way. But, when you finally make time to read one of her books, no matter what, you are so happy you have? Leila Sales is this omnipresent author you always knew you would love.
From her highly lauded novels, “Mostly Good Girls” to “Past Perfect” and her most recent (out September 17!) “This Song Will Save Your Life,” Leila Sales knows how to capture the mindset of a teenage girl who wants to figure out how the world works in her own unique way, at her pace, with mistakes and heartbreak and love and music and academics and ice cream all mixed together. Leila Sales always allows her female protagonists to breathe. To grow. To live.
YARN is ecstatic to share with you an exclusive chat between Leila Sales and YARN editors about her new book, chocolate, writing, and much more.
