Adele Broadbent and Diana Noonan on writing for today's teens

From Standing Room Only, 2:40 pm on 22 March 2020

Writers of fiction for young adults explore themes that are universal in nature but often most poignant in young people finding their way in the world. Two new books by New Zealand authors Half my Life by Diana Noonan and Adele Broadbent's If Only are very different stories, but with similar threads within them. Standing Room Only producer Laura Dooney spoke to Adele and Diana about their new books and the issues they look at, and what writing for teens is like in 2020.
