246: Supergirl Being Super

242: Princess Princess Ever After

A not so ordinary fairytale romance!

From Comixology:
When the heroic princess Amira rescues the kind-hearted princess Sadie from her tower prison, neither expects to find a true friend in the bargain. Yet as they adventure across the kingdom, they discover that they bring out the very best in the other person. They’ll need to join forces and use all the know-how, kindness, and bravery they have in order to defeat their greatest foe yet: a jealous sorceress, who wants to get rid of Sadie once and for all. Join Sadie and Amira, two very different princesses with very different strengths, on their journey to figure out what “happily ever after” really means–and how they can find it with each other.

216: Scales and Scoundrels

Magic! Thieves! Dragons! Adventure awaits!

Your patreon pick is here!

From the Image website:

It’s hard to make an honest living in a land brimming with magic and mystery, and treasure hunter Luvander is tired of being a penniless adventurer. Ever in search of gold and glory, she sets off for a fabled dungeon, “the Dragon’s Maw,” an ancient labyrinth at the bottom of which slumber endless wealth…or certain doom! A loner by nature, Luvander is forced to team up with a group of scraggly adventurers, each hoping to find a treasure of their own in the forbidden tomb. There is Prince Aki, of the Scarlet Sands Empire, anxious for his first taste of adventure, yet blind to the consequences; his royal Shadow, Koro, whose very honor hangs in the balance of her prince’s quest; and Dorma Ironweed, a stocky young dwarf whose journey will take her deeper into the darkness than she ever dared to tread. What starts out as a road to riches becomes the first step on an epic journey to destiny, for Luvander holds a secret in her heart that will shatter the chains of fate and bring light to a world encroached upon by an ancient darkness.

215: City on the Other Side

A magical journey awaits!

You adult month continues with Kelly’s pick!

From the Macmillan website:

In The City on the Other Side, a young girl stumbles into a pitched war between two fairy kingdoms, and the fate of San Francisco itself hangs in the balance!

Sheltered within her high-society world, Isabel plays the part of a perfectly proper little girl—she’s quiet, well-behaved, and she keeps her dresses spotlessly clean. She’s certainly not the kind of girl who goes on adventures.

But that all changes when Isabel breaches an invisible barrier and steps into another world. She discovers a city not unlike her own, but magical and dangerous. Here, war rages between the fairies of the Seelie and Unseelie Courts. Only Isabel, with the help of a magical necklace and a few new friends, stands a chance of ending the war before it destroys the fairy world, and her own.

214: Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane

Swing into high school drama!

Andrew’s choice for Young Adult month week 2!

From Amazon:

Whether she’s going to school or hanging out with her friends at the Coffee Bean, Mary Jane Watson is always the center of attention. But what no one knows is that this gorgeous redhead’s exuberant personality is a shell designed to make her forget about life’s harsh realities. From her social life to her undying interest in becoming an actress to her crush on that costumed crime-fighter who swings along the New York City rooftops, it’s clear Mary Jane just wants to escape. Join MJ, Harry Osborn, Liz Allen, Flash Thompson and Harry’s nerdy friend, Peter Parker, as they experience the thrilling highs and the crushing lows of high-school existence in this electric teen drama!

213: In Real Life

Can an MMORPG change your life?

Young adult month kicks off with Alison’s pick!

From the First Second website:

Anda loves Coarsegold Online, the massively-multiplayer role playing game that she spends most of her free time on. It’s a place where she can be a leader, a fighter, a hero. It’s a place where she can meet people from all over the world, and make friends. Gaming is, for Anda, entirely a good thing.

But things become a lot more complicated when Anda befriends a gold farmer—a poor Chinese kid whose avatar in the game illegally collects valuable objects and then sells them to players from developed countries with money to burn. This behavior is strictly against the rules in Coarsegold, but Anda soon comes to realize that questions of right and wrong are a lot less straightforward when a real person’s real livelihood is at stake.

What happens when the three of us record by ourselves ? It doesn’t work out very well apparently. We thought this file was unusable until Producer Jamie recovered the audio using his mad skills. This is our first attempt at covering young adult books on the show. This was meant to be the fifth episode of Out of the Fridge.
