DTR (Defining the Relationship)

Join bestselling YA authors Becky Albertalli and Aisha Saeed (Yes No Maybe So), Leah Johnson (You Should See Me in a Crown), and Kacen Callender (Felix Ever After) as they discuss the life-defining relationships explored in their recent novels. Moderated by Caleb Roehrig (The Fell of Dark). Whether it’s canvassing for change with a new-friend-turned-love-interest, falling for the competition in a tight race for prom queen, or seeking revenge but somehow finding yourself on a path of self-discovery, relationships are such a hallmark of the teen experience—relationships with others, of course, but also your relationship with yourself.
