This summer has blessed us with a whole lotta YA movies. On Geek Girl Riot this week our Rioters talk the stories they’re loving and the POC girls that are stealing their hearts in YA. They also tackle the new Netflix flicks: The Kissing Booth andTo All the Boys I’ve Loved Before.
We Heart YA Romance The Kissing Booth is already a monster hit—Sherin, Sam, and Alex dig into why it’s super cute…but not without its problems. From John Hughes to the 90s teen renaissance to the new wave, hear why YA romcoms are so special and what they want to see more of. Then they chat To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before AKA the film everyone is heart-eyes over—get a sneak peek into why you’ll l-u-v it (and then get into Sam’s review).
POC Girls Leading the Way When YA embraces diversity it makes our hearts sing. Our Rioters discuss the POC stories that mean the most to them and the ones they’re celebrating onscreen.
What We Wanna See Next Reading a whole lot of YA is basically a Rioter requirement, so Sherin, Sam, and Alex list the novels they want need to see adapted next.
