It seems like the 2020 election will never end, even as President-elect Biden’s inauguration draws nearer. Even though we all have election fatigue, it’s still important to be politically aware and responsible consumers of media.
Enter Lori Goldstein’s Sources Say, a young adult novel focused on a contentious high school election between two exes. Caught in the middle is a reporter, the sister of one of the candidates, attempting to do her best at covering everything truthfully and fairly.
Sources Say is a fun and easy read for readers of all ages to learn more about the realities of misinformation and politics in an accessible environment. The characters are likable and easy to grasp on to and the romantic plot is compelling. Though at times the plot devices and framework can feel a bit gimmicky, they work well within the overall story for a unique twist on social media and news.
