The YA Room

The YA Room is a Melbourne-based Young Adult book club! We meet once a month to discuss our Book of the Month, as well as host a variety of other special events. The YA Room was created by Sarah Robinson-Hatch and Alexandra Panzarino, two passionate readers from Melbourne, at the beginning 2017.

Book of the Month

I Was Born For This by Alice Oseman

34325090 copyFor Angel Rahimi, life is only about one thing: The Ark – a pop-rock trio of teenage boys who are currently taking the world by storm. Being part of The Ark’s fandom has given her everything – her friendships, her dreams, her place in the world.

Jimmy Kaga-Ricci owes everything to The Ark too. He’s their frontman – and playing in a band is all he’s ever dreamed of doing. It’s just a shame that recently everything in his life seems to have turned into a bit of a nightmare.

Because that’s the problem with dreaming – eventually, inevitably, real life arrives with a wake-up call. And when Angel and Jimmy are unexpectedly thrust together, they will discover just how strange and surprising facing up to reality can be.
