Frame & Canvas: Art in Teen Fiction

Art is a powerful force. It can connect us to our past, ground us in our present, and create change in the world. Some of my favorite YA novels have shared the healing power of art, like Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson, or the way that art and identity are intertwined, as in North of Beautiful by Justina Chen Headley.

Check out this Spark Page for more about three new YA novels with art at the center of the story.
