Has YA fiction left us thirsting for a green-eyed, brooding, leather-jacket-wearing babe? Why does stalking lead to love so often, and when did unsolicited DMs replace romantic letters? Are we waiting for a meet cute full of unrealistic standards and expectations?

Dhonielle Clayton, Mackenzi Lee, and Jenna Guillaume recount the lies about love and relationships that young adult fiction taught them and how it has influenced the way they write romance now, with host Sarah Ayoub.
