Hi. A teacher-librarian yelled at me to update this, so here goes. Time to talk about myself in the third-person.

Will Kostakis is an absolute delight.

In the past, he has written everything from celebrity news stories that score cease and desist letters, to tweets for professional wrestlers.

Nowadays, he’s best known (but not particularly well known) for his award-winning YA novels.

“One, there was never any mention of this being a gathering. Two, I do not trust anyone who leaves home without a book. It is just not right." Miles. p. 165.”
Will Kostakis, The Sidekicks

“You don't know how long you have, do what makes you happy. Live. Love and be remarkable.”
Will Kostakis, The Sidekicks

“Time is pulling us apart. With every second that passes, the space between us widens. Today, I saw him yesterday. In a few days, it will have been last week. Then, last month. And there is nothing I can do to keep time from wedging more of itself between us. It is inevitable. - Miles”
Will Kostakis, The Sidekicks
