Welcome to another edition of YA Onscreen! I’m covering the series today because Stephanie’s power has been iffy—thanks, Irma—but she and her family are doing well otherwise. We hope everyone else in the storm’s path can say the same, as well as any of y’all who were affected by Hurricane Harvey. All our love to you!
