Whether you’re in stage crew or in the spirit realm, middle school can be anxiety-inducing. Join Alex Gino and Justine Pucella Winans to talk about the unforgettable nonbinary leads in their new novels. In Green, eponymous Green Wilson preps for the school play alongside their crush as they navigate the onset of puberty. In The Otherwoods, reluctant hero River Rydell faces their lifelong fear of the terrifying monsters only they can see and enters the spirit realm to save their friend (and crush) Avery. If you’re a fan of compelling character voices in both realistic fiction and horror, you won’t want to miss this panel.
