We’d known that Suzanne Collins’ surprise announcement of a new Hunger Games novel was going to be a precursor to her beloved YA dystopian trilogy.Now, it’s got a shiny new cover and an intriguing new name.Revealed on Good Morning America on Friday, what was previously simply Untitled Panem Novel is now The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes.Set 64 years before the events of Katniss’ revolution in the original series, Ballad will revolve specifically around the events of the 10th Hunger Games – Panem’s battle royale event where kids of its myriad districts are randomly selected to take part in a murderous fight for survival – and the slow recovery the dystopian nation state took after a deadly war nearly destroyed it.The book’s cover, featuring the series’ traditional Mockingbird looking upwards to the sky, is meant to be representative of Collins’ approach to Ballad’s message, which, according to statements in a provided press release by Scholastic President Ellie Berger, “raises important questions about authority, the use of violence, and the truth of human nature.” It’s a story that we could also be seeing onscreen – Lionsgate, who developed the Jennifer Lawrence-starring trilogy of Hunger Games films, has already hinted the franchise could return with spinoffs inspired by this new prequel.The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes is set to be published by Scholastic May 19, 2020.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) warned minors, pregnant women, young adults, and people who don’t use tobacco that they shouldn’t vape after a spate of recent illnesses and one death linked to e-cigarettes.According to the CDC’s announcement, as of August 27, 215 possible cases of vaping-related respiratory disease have been reported from 25 different states.While the cause of the issues is currently presumed to be the use of e-cigarette products, the CDC says that more information is currently needed to determine the specifics.The agency also confirmed that one person who had used a vaping product died in Illinois after being hospitalized with severe respiratory illness.“Regardless of the ongoing investigation, e-cigarette products should not be used by youth, young adults, pregnant women, as well as adults who do not currently use tobacco products,” the CDC said.The CDC and FDA are working with local health departments to gather information about the illness impacting those people, along with products or substances those individuals used.
DC recently announced that they were consolidating all of their imprints, cancelling a wide variety of separate lines, including the DC Ink and DC Zoom lines aimed at younger readers.In the aftermath of that news, it would be easy to worry about the future of DC’s books for non-adult audiences, but it turns out they have that covered.As reported by Comic Book Resources, DC has, in fact, announced a huge lineup of graphic novels aimed at those precise audiences, a release slate of over 25 graphic novels for young adult and middle grade readers from an impressive array of writers and artists.Announced at the American Library Association’s yearly convention last weekend, these books span a variety of DC properties and characters, and if the books from Zoom and Ink are any indication, will likely be experimental and creative in the way they play with genre and style to tell these stories for new audiences.First, here are the Young Adult titles, with their announced creative teams:Catwoman: Soulstealer – Adapted by Louise Simonson from Sarah J. Maas’ DC Icon novel and illustrated by Samantha Dodge
DC Ink is DC’s latest attempt to break into the YA direct market, and its next release, written by YA author Kami Garcia and drawn by Gabriel Picolo (who rose to viral fame with his illustrations of casual Teen Titans), is Teen Titans: Raven, coming out this summer.At this weekend’s BookCon, Deadline caught up with Garcia and premiered the graphic novel’s trailer, which features sharp, evocative art and a version of Raven who has to deal with both regular teen life and the dark burden of her true past.“Raven is an origin story,” Garcia told Deadline, “and I wanted to explore how it would feel to be a teen with powers without putting all the focus on the powers themselves.” Raven takes place in New Orleans, which Garcia says “felt like the perfect city for a magical character like Raven.I hope both YA fans and comics fans enjoy our original take.”Based on what the trailer shows, it looks fantastic.The book launches 2nd July, and the duo are already slated to write a Beast Boy book as a follow up.

Fugitives are seized and enforcers revel in their sovereignty, drunk on power.The scene, just as many others are, is emblematic of the cardinal friction that undergirds the 10-episode series from showrunner Christopher Keyser: To anchor control, you've got to enforce order.Food is in limited supply and it's unclear how long resources—like water and electricity—will last.A less-than-savvy remix on the classic 1954 novel Lord of the Flies with echoes of teen pulp engines Riverdale and Degrassi, The Society is a moderately engaging YA soap.The show, which hit Netflix today, focuses on a group of high schoolers—200, to be exact—who go on a weekend trip but, when the weather proves too disastrous, are returned home the same night.Speculation as to where they are, and why they've been brought to what they eventually designate as New Ham, runs the gamut.
New Rochelle, NY, April 23, 2019--While sending or receiving nude electronic images may not always be associated with poorer mental health, being coerced to do so and receiving unwanted sexts was linked to a higher likelihood of depression, anxiety, and stress symptoms, according to a new study published in Cyberpsychology, Behavior, and Social Networking, a peer-reviewed journal from Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., publishers.Click here to read the full-text article free on the Cyberpsychology, Behavior, and Social Networking website through May 23, 2019.The article entitled "Sexting and Psychological Distress: The Role of Unwanted and Coerced Sexts" was coauthored by Bianca Klettke and colleagues from Deakin University (Victoria, Australia).The researchers found that receiving unwanted texts and sexting under coercion was also associated with lower self-esteem.Furthermore, males receiving unwanted sexts had poorer mental health outcomes."With more of our lives playing out online, sexting and other seemingly private communications may be contributing to an indelible digital footprint.

Teens and young adults are in the midst of a unique mental health crisis, suggests a new study out Thursday.It found that rates of depressive episodes and serious psychological distress have dramatically risen among these age groups in recent years, while hardly budging or even declining for older age groups.Lead author Jean Twenge, a 47-year-old professor of psychology at San Diego State University, has spent much of her career studying the attitudes and beliefs of younger generations.Most recently, in 2017, Twenge published a pop-science book laying out her central argument that teens and young adults coming of age are especially lonely and disconnected, thanks in part to the growing abundance of social media and devices like smartphones.Twenge’s book and work had has its detractors, who argue that her theory is supported by cherry-picked and weak evidence, or that other factors aside from smartphones could be the real culprit behind a legitimate rise in teen depression.Twenge and her team looked at data from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, a nationally representative survey of Americans’ lifestyle habits.
For one thing, young adult novels understand the behavioral patterns, struggles and idiosyncrasies of their audience.That isn’t the only thing young adult (YA) fiction and pay-per-click ads have in common, though.When it comes to readability, it just so happens that top-performing text ads tend to be written as though they were meant for a classroom full of ninth graders!If AdWords and “The Hunger Games” have more in common than you thought, you’re not alone.Today, I’m going to show you how three tactics used by YA novelists — optimizing for readability, leveraging emotional appeals and pandering to your audience’s sense of entitlement — can help you write killer ad copy.Tweenage readability is the secret to improving CTR & conversion rate
It’s not just a question of finding the editor’s contact information and hewing to the outlet’s requirements for length and topic.A subtle but essential nuance that entrepreneurs often miss is how to adapt your writing voice to suit different publications.Tailoring your voice to fit a specific market or audience, however, will help you stand out when you need to excel.As a professional writer, ghost blogger, and editor, one of us (Sue) publishes her work under various names and using various styles -- everything from young adult literature to business writing.Here are four ways you can match your voice to any target publication, so your style is “just right” for them.First, look at whether the most popular writers at your target outlet typically use the first person (“I’ve worked with several companies that did XYZ”) or the third person (“It’s common for companies to do XYZ”).
