On Friday, March 3, I was lucky enough to view a special preview screening of the Beauty and the Beast live action film. We’re talking stars aligning here and my faith being restored in all humanity—that kind of lucky.

Volume 17 of The YA Chronicles is the first box of 2017! And it’s been a pretty fabulous start to the year.
