Benjamin Dean & Simon James Green: Who Wants the Spotlight?

Backstabbing, scandal and, most importantly, heart-swooning romance are at the core of the new novels from Benjamin Dean and Simon James Green. In Dean’s The King is Dead, Prince James is suddenly thrust into the spotlight as he takes the throne following his father’s death. In Green’s high-school tale Gay Club!, Barney is desperate to become president of his school’s LGBTQIA+ society. Is fame worth it? Find out in this conversation for teenagers and young adults with poet and novelist, Dean Atta.
