YAY for YA!! Lessons I Never Learned At Meadowbrook Academy by Liz Maccie

Unknown

“High School’s never over” is one of my all time favorite lines from a movie (The Jane Austen Book Club). To say that I connected with Liz Maccie’s debut would be a wild understatement. Lessons I Never Learned At Meadowbrook Academy takes place on Roberta Romano’s first day of school -and her first day at Meadowbrook. From the dialog to the backstory of her characters, Maccie’s story comes alive and made me feel like I was in class, the cafeteria and even detention. (yes, I had one experience if you can imagine) This is the perfect book for the YA reader in your life and YOU!

My conversation with Liz has the added bonus of shout-outs to Liz’ husband, Stephen Chbosky, who penned the cult classic The Perks Of Being  A Wallflower. You will love hearing their “how we met” story. I know I did!

      Hi Liza, wow -that’s a really good one. It is a really difficult thing to be able to do in those teen years. With my children I was able to share some of that hard-earned wisdom and empowered them TO speak up in high school.The adults rarely see it coming.

    a lesson i never learned in high school … hmm … i never learned that it’s all right to say you’re not doing well – that life isn’t as great as you’d like, and you need some support.
