My sister and I were trying to plan our weekend. After a texting spree that reminded us why we had an unlimited messaging plan, we still had some details to figure out. I suppose we could have just called each other, but personally I love to text and chat, or both simultaneously. I started thinking why text, tweets and IMs aren’t a more common form of communication in books when they are main way I converse in real life. People do so much online these days that we have whole websites like Autocowrecks that revel in the hilarity of auto-correct trying to tell us what we mean. With whole Twitter and tumblr hashtags devoted to texting mistakes, it seems that online conversations are the preferred way to talk. I was inspired by two previous Hub posts about novels that use letters and emails to tell a story. Check out Epistolary Novels, Old and New by Hannah Gomez and Signed, Sealed, and Delivered: A Love Letter to the Un-Epistolary Novel by Wendy Daughdrill– and here’s my list of YA books that tell a story with the help of texts, IMs, and other forms of digital communication.
