Cover Art | Smash It! by Francina Simone
Olivia “Liv” James is done with letting her insecurities get the best of her. So she does what any self-respecting hot mess of a girl who wants to SMASH junior year does. She makes a list—a F*ck It list.
Be bold—do the things that scare me.
Learn to take a compliment.
Stand out instead of back.
Now she’s got a part in her school’s musical production of Othello, new friends and the attention of three very different boys. In Liv’s own words, “F*ck it. What’s the worst that can happen?” The answer is… a lot. #SMASHIT

Francina Simone is literally my favorite BookTuber. Everyone (particularly white Americans) should watch this video. I know it is long, but treat it like a podcast. Take the time. It is worth it.

Hurt people really fuckin' hurt other people. You get so scared or triggered by things that you were told in your childhood, things that people have called you, things that have come with you through life because you haven't healed from them yet, that as soon as you see something, you snap . . . You go straight for the jugular because you're not gonna let somebody else hurt you again.
Francina Simone, “BLOOD HEIR Controversy”

10 Tips For Writing Great YA Fiction | NaNoWriMo
She does comment on first drafts always being horrible (which I don't agree with) and a warning for some swearing, but Francina has some great writing tips that are more about crafting a story that feels right than whether or not you should use adverbs or "said". Definitely a set of writing tips that are way more my style.

How The Book Community Has Achieved Moral Bankruptcy Some highlights of this awesome video: “poor, marginalized, and people from foreign countries still have morals! And if you don’t fine, but we don’t have to lose ours.”, “Shame comes from within, not without. You’re not going to feel bad about something you did, because of someone else unless you already felt it was wrong.”, “let’s not pretend this isn’t happening”

I am loving Francina’s perspective, both on these issues and writing craft. I can’t wait to have time to read her books.

I have YouTube recommendations for y’all, since the standard “breadtube” folks keep getting “cancelled” or maybe you’re just tired of listening only to white people. There are still some white folks on this list, but I’m keeping it to a minimum.
