With distance learning, teens are having to manage their time and attention now more than ever.
Procrastination is especially tough for young adults. We are all wired to put things off, but we can learn tools and techniques to kick this habit. This book is a user-friendly guide to help teens get their tasks done. Simple, straightforward, and with a touch of humor, it’s packed with practical solutions and easily digestible tips to stay on top of homework, develop a sense of time, manage digital distractions, create easy-to-follow routines, and get unstuck.
Hey YA Readers!
So much great news hit the YA world in the last week . . . not to mention so many great new YA books dropped. October is starting out great in YA!
YA Book News
- Scott Westerfeld’s Uglies series will be adapted for Netflix.
- Four Scholastic YA and Middle Grade books are being adapted into animated horror series. I love this so much, and the three books I’ve read of the four will make SUCH great viewing.
- Nicola Yoon and David Yoon are creating their own imprint dedicated to rom-coms by and about people of color. Sweet!
- I hadn’t realized that American Road Trip by Patrick Flores Scott was made into a comic (that you can read for free!).
- But a drop in the bucket, but it’s good to see pointing out how white British YA is has meant more effort to ensure authors of color are publishing, too.
