Welcome to another week of YA Onscreen! I had to wade through multiple articles about Stormy Daniels and the highest ratings 60 Minutes has received in years to find these entertainment nuggets, so I’m basically like a modern-day prospector, except instead of gold I collect YA-relevant news. Let’s hit the links!
