Welcome to active-voice.net, the online home of Becky Allen and Jess Plummer. Here’s what we do:

Becky Allen’s Sporadic Blog

A personal blog about writing, reading, female characters, the New York subway, and whatever else Becky feels like when she remembers that it exists.

Jess’s (Somewhat) Grown-Up Type Blog

Jess opinionates on comic books, cartoons, bubblegum pop, musicals, and other things she’s really too old for. Loudly.

Retired Projects

Active Voice

Reviews of young adult and children’s science fiction/fantasy books. Our reviews often have a particular focus on the roles of female characters. Books are graded on a scale of one to five cupcakes, because cupcakes are delicious.

Tweenage Wasteland

Sometimes we post interesting essays and reviews of what’s going on with tween TV and music. But mostly we post stupid pictures of Zac Efron.
