    Are You New to NA… This is Where You Should Start

    I was lucky when I started to read New Adult a few years ago that there were many reviewers that steered me in the right direction, so I want to do that for you now. There are important things to consider when jumping into NA for the first time: Don’t go hardcore or extreme right away! This might put you off NA forever. NA deserves a gradual entry, one should start with novels that tow the line between NA and YA. My recommendation for someone’s very first NA book is… Slammed tells the story of an eighteen-year-old girl who moves to a new city with her mother, after the death…

    The NA Books That Have Made Me Cry…

    It was quite common for me to shed a tear during each and every YA book I read, where as NA has not had a similar effect. I have noticed over the years that I do not cry as commonly as I had before while reading.
