BSG #49: "You're not special!"/ The Paper Wasp

Start a toxic friendship with us while we discuss Lauren Acampora’s novel The Paper Wasp. We talk about the book’s unreliable narrator, the stalker-esque relationship between the main characters, the culty subplot,and that wild ride of an ending. Next we get into some listener feedback for Docile and catch up with what’s on the #BookSquadBlog as we close out 2020. Join us for our first #othersode of the new year about Wonder Woman 1984 on January 11, and read along for our next #bookpisode on Luster by Raven Leilani on January 25. Email or DM us feedback on The Paper Wasp, your favorite things of 2020, or anything else your heart desires!
