Jenny Han’s popular YA novel, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, is coming to Netflix this summer and if the trailer is anything to go by, it’s going to deliver all the summer drama you’ve been waiting for.

 

 

To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before depicts practically every teenagers worst nightmare – having your deepest romantic feelings and secrets exposed to the entire school. Lara Jean (Lana Condor) is a shy teen who is thrust into the school spotlight after love letters which she’d written to her former crushes make their way around school, and into the hands of the subjects of her letters. 

 

 

 

 

 

Han’s novel has gained widespread attention and popularity since its release in 2014 and since Netflix announced their plans to adapt it into a feature film, fans everywhere have been awaiting the release with excitement. But you won’t have to wait for much longer, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before will be available for streaming on Netflix on August 17 2018.

Jenny Han’s message to her fans highlights the significance of having three Asian American actresses lead a movie. Though its release date has yet to be announced, fans should start getting hyped…and maybe double check the security of their clandestine romantic correspondences.

Authors Team Up to Raise 280,000 for Syrian Refugees

Patrick Ness is an award-winning young adult author who is best known for books like The Rest of Us Just Live Here; but, he did some of his most important work ever yesterday in 140-character chunks. Ness took to Twitter to try and help Syrian refugees, and he succeeded beyond his wildest dreams.

It all started with this tweet, where Ness offered to match donations up to £10,000 (more than $15,000 US):

Pretty soon, though, Ness wasn’t alone. John Green, the popular author of The Fault in Our Stars, stepped up to match the next £10,000 raised. Derek Landy, the author of Skulduggery Pleasant, matched a further £10,000.

Ness was ecstatic, and he thanked everyone – but this was premature, as donations and offers to match just kept rolling in!

Hank Green (John Green’s brother) joined in, as did Jenny Han and a contingent of American young adult authors.

Some authors offered a different kind of support, like Maureen Johnson, who was handing out “custom nicknames” to those who donated:

The results are incredible. At this time, Ness’ fund has hit £280,000 and it’s still growing. That’s over $425,000 US!
