GUEST POST: The Case for College: a Rant by Samantha Durante, author of Stitch

GUEST POST: The Case for College: a Rant by Samantha Durante, author of Stitch

The Case for College: a Rant by Samantha Durante, author of Stitch College, in my view, is the *perfect* setting for a book. Think about it – minimal adult supervision, new surroundings, new people, new lifestyle, new autonomy. Young people trying to “find themselves” or reinvent their pasts, or at the very least, figure out who around them is worthy of their trust. It’s an environment that’s rife with opportunities for characters to grow and change, and not to mention get involved in all kinds of hormone-fueled adventures, comic misdeeds and dramatic, life-altering mistakes. And what’s more, it’s a period of life that unites readers young and old with a common bond. Whether you’re a teen looking forward to your upcoming college experience or an adult nostalgic for those wonderful years in your life, college is an experience that a broad spectrum of readers can relate to. Even if you… Read more »
