Book Review: The Stranger


A few years is a lifetime in YA: #YesGayYA is probably so far back that at least some people are not aware of what exactly happened.

The short version is this: Brown and Smith co-wrote a post-apocalyptic YA book, STRANGER, featuring a diverse cast and 5 POV characters. During their search for an agent for this book (they were already agented, only separately) they wrote a post on Publishers Weekly where they revealed that an unnamed agent had asked them to either remove the POV of one character, or change/hide an intrinsic part of him.
