Fake Geek Girls

Tithe by Holly Black

Melissa Brinks published on

Join us as we venture deep under the earth into a wild, fae bacchanal of excess and indulgence - or don't, because we're talking about Holly Black's Tithe in episode 86! As one of our favorite YA books when we were young adults, how did this shape the people we became? How did we handle the creepy parts? And what would we do if we found ourselves with an invitation to a faerie party?

To get right to the Tithe talk, skip to 00:15:00.

Warnings: A teensy bit of cussing, but some pretty frank discussions of sex and masturbation.
