Question of the Day

Suggested by Shaker Killemalla: "What book did you love in high school that still holds up today? Conversely, what book does not?"

Holds up: The Grounding of Group 6, by Julian F. Thompson.

Doesn't: Probably anything by Christopher Pike, lol. I loved the fuck outta those books, though!

To be totally honest, I haven't read any of the Pike books since, so maybe they do hold up better than I expect they would. But I doubt it, since so many of them relied on super problematic revenge tropes. BUT I LOVED THEM.
