We could not resist looking at Augie March, a character who spends so much effort and time questioning his purpose, through the lens of the today’s young adult fiction. John Green (Looking for Alaska, Paper Towns) and Benjamin Alire Sáenz (Sammy and Juliana in Hollywood, He Forgot to Say Goodbye) are experts in creating young characters who must endure their own self-questioning and “come of age” despite the largest hurdle of all—themselves. The authors were joined by Donna Seaman, book critic and a senior editor for Booklist.
