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 co-created at the beginning of 2017, and it’s currently run by Sarah Robinson-Hatch and Bianca Breen. Past co-hosts include Alexandra Panzarino and Shaun Goodhue.

Libby Lawrence is Good at Pretending

libby-lawrence-is-good-at-pretending
Nineteen-year-old Libby Lawrence is good at pretending. Problem is, she’s not entirely sure how to stop. Which is good for her role in the campus production of Much Ado About Nothing … but poses problems in her personal life. Especially when the list of things she can’t admit to, even to her best friend Ella, starts to build.

Losing her virginity to the too-charming director of her uni theatre group (just before he ran off with the group’s money) is only the start. There’s also an uncomfortable encounter with her broody on-stage love interest Roarke, and her crackling offstage chemistry with nerdy-but-sweet new director Will.

And while Libby is thrilled to finally be on the inside of the uni theatre group she reveres, there’s a downside to being in on all the group chats, drama and backstage gossip. She must discover who she wants to be, who she wants to be with … and how to stop pretending.
