cb is a shapeshifter of sorts … [ring a bells anyone ?]

 cb lee writes wonderful novels for young adults with everything you need: romance, heartbreak, adventure, conspiracy, ethnically and gender diverse characters, all rolled into fast-paced narratives playing out in complex and somewhat dystopian worlds.

drax learned that in 2018 young people have a plethora of stories to choose from that reflect diversity so much better than the formulaic spy thrillers he read as a teen [mainly robert ludlum and alistair mclean with some misogynystic conan short stories sprinkled in for good measure!].

my mom hated this part of the collection except for the very far left book 😉
