Award-winning author Erin Entrada Kelly loves the honesty from her young readers — whether they enjoy her books or not!

Young people are incredibly honest, which is one of the reasons I love writing for them and talking to them, because, you know, they haven’t developed the filters yet. So they’ll just be very straightforward and honest, which I love. “I thought your book was boring.” It doesn’t bother me. I mean of course not all kids are going to like all books, just like not all adults are going to like all books. I love hearing from kids no matter what they thought of the book. I just like to know they’re reading.
