Interested in learning more about school and library workshops or classes by B A Binns?

What people say about the books of author B A Binns:

 …offers much to engage both male and female readers, readers of color, and teachers. – Booklist 

Binns depicts the struggles a teenager goes through fighting peer pressure and hormonal urges—and building strength of character and moral courage—all without sounding like a preacher on a pulpit. – Booksquawk

The author shows us a very real and gripping portrayal – Young Adults Books Central

There’s a lot to admire about what Binns is doing here, from providing a darkly realistic portrayal of teen relationships (from sex to sports to social death) to tossing aside cultural norms about what success looks like. – Book Slut

This great story is perfect for fans of realistic fiction. – Diversity in YA fiction
