026 — Treacherous Love (w/ Mara Wilson)

This time, the book in question is Beatrice Sparks’ “Treacherous Love: The Diary of an Anonymous Teenager”. Following in the tradition of Sparks’ most well-known work, “Go Ask Alice”, this is a fake diary by a teenager who never existed. In it, we follow the escapades of Jennie as she discovers marijuana, visits Yellowstone Park, and is seduced by a creepy teacher named J.J. who talks like a self-help manual.

Joining me this week is returning guest Mara Wilson, who can be found at http://www.marawilsonwritesstuff.com
