Discover authors discussing books that helped shape and prepare them for the world of adults. NPR, the National Public Radio, has started a brand new summer series for young adults called PG:13 Risky Reads.  In this installment the authors, Myla Goldberg, Emily Danforth and Ben Marcus go back into the recesses of their teenage years and uncover books by Neville Shute, Rita Mae Brown and Robert Cormier that helped expose them to the world-at-large.
