Author Patty Blount uses real life to inspire her young adult novels like SEND and TMI. Join BOOKED! host Shannon Delany for a discussion on writing ripped from the headlines novels!
From tips and things to consider when dealing with internet safety to how Patty handled bullying concerns herself--Patty Blount advocates parents truly tuning in to what's happening in their child's life and taking control to better protect children in a world of potentially dangerous technology we too frequently view as simple toys.
Patty's "Internet issues" novels are not only powerful reads for any curious teen but also a great way to open conversations with classrooms of teen readers--all of whom have probably faced issues of bullying and struggled with connecting safely to people online.
