Last weekend we headed to Uxbridge to get our book nerd on with YA Shot. We went to panels, author signings, workshops and dribbled over the book-buying and merch tables. It was a seriously fun time.
We also took along Tom Leishman, photographer extraordinaire, who got some amazing shots of our antics.
Did you know you can catch lots of the YA Shot authors on Snapchat?
Here are 22 of the best photos of YA Shot.
We scoped out the joint before launching into author interviews.
