Small Screen YA (3)

Not only am I an avid book reader, I'm also an avid TV watcher. And every once in awhile, I get
really into a show that contains all the elements of a great YA novel. These aren't shows adapted from books, they're just brilliantly written scripts and scenes. This will be a once-in-awhile kind of feature, one that I'll post when I discover an amazing television show that YA lovers absolutely need to watch.

The Fosters (ABC Family)

The Fosters is still a fairly new show with only two aired episodes so far, but I'm absolutely hooked. It follows Stef Foster and Lena Adams, a married lesbian couple who are raising their children - Stef's seventeen-year-old biological son Brandon and adopted fourteen-year-old twins Jesus and Mariana.

Callie is a teenaged orphan with a troubled, tragic past. After she's beaten at the juvenile detention center that she was sent to after a mishap with her latest foster parent, Lena feels sympathetic for her and takes her home. But Callie's past makes it difficult for her to fit in with the others in the house. The only one who softens to her is Brandon, who aids in her rescuing her little brother from the abusive foster parent who sent her to juvie.

85% of this show is YA, you guys. Callie's struggle to adjust to a normal household is so heartbreaking and entertaining at the same time. I absolutely love her character because she's sarcastic and strong but also has these vulnerable moments that make her seem so real. I'm also enjoying the dynamic between Lena and Stef. I'm excited to see the show explore their relationship a lot more in future episodes.

And Brandon is so stinking adorable. *pinches cheeks*

The Fosters is on Mondays at 9pm on ABC Family.

  1. I'm addicted to TV as well as YA books too but I've not heard of The Fosters. Probably because I live in Portugal... I guess I'll just have to wait for it to start showing on cable! I reckon I'm gonna love it ;)
