Paperback Crush: The Totally Radical History of '80s and '90s Teen Fiction

by Gabrielle Moss

Need a little history on the underrated paperback writings of the 80's and 90's? Paperback Crush is about all those authors that didn't draw audiences the Harry Potter-type young adult novels that came later, but weren't necessarily about socio-economics issues either. These were the novels that you could get for cheap and lose yourself in for hours. Explore the classics from this era and their spin-offs with Gabrielle Moss, an author of books like GLOP: Nontoxic and Expensive Ideas That Will Make You Look Ridiculous, and the features editor for Bustle, as she brings you on a trip down memory lane, where you can explore your old favorites or learn about some hidden gems.
