“Paperback Crush” Book Review

As a millennial, I grew up devouring the Babysitter Club and Sweet Valley High books (not to mention the Fear Street and Goosebumps series), so naturally, a book all about 80’s and 90’s teen fiction is right up my alley. Moss does a great job giving background on why these books were so popular and how they worked to influence the juggernaut of publishing that YA books have become. She also includes a perfect snarky tone that helps steer this book away from having too serious of an attitude. Not only did this book spark tons of nostalgia for me, but it also has inspired me to check out some of the popular books that I missed from that time period. Plus, I loved all of the pictures of the book covers and the rad graphics throughout the book. This was such a fun read – can’t wait to recommend it to my fellow 90’s babies!
