No, not the city. The other LA: Louisiana.
In a wrap-up of the 2007 year in books, Baton Rouge Advocate Book Editor Greg Langley mentions the fast growing YA category and then comments that:
Barry Lyga’s remarkable book, Boy Toy, is told in the voice of a teenage victim of sexual exploitation. The storyline is extremely topical, but more than that, it’s well written and entertaining, frank but not prurient.
Thanks for showin’ the love!
