A little bit about us. We’re both YA authors whose debut novels came out in 2013. We became acquainted via Twitter (Christa credits Daniel Kraus, though Carrie can’t remember the connection). After a flurry of emails, we graduated to phone conversations, during which we’d discuss various books we’d read, comparing them with the particulars of our own experiences as teenagers and adults. Both of us write contemporary realistic fiction and both of us are specifically concerned with depictions of sex, sexual identity, and relationships of all kinds in fiction. Since we’re also big podcast fans, we decided to extend our conversations into something less ephemeral and exclusive, which is how our show’s concept was born. And now we’re making our debut with our new sponsor, The Booklist Reader!
In this episode, we discuss cheating, including our own histories of cheating, as well as several books that we think deal with cheating in smart and surprising ways.
