So apparently AwesomenessTV is plunging full-bore into the past. First they announced their plans to open a physical store in Los Angeles and now they have started a publishing imprint … for books.

Focusing on the Young Adult genre, Awesomeness Ink makes its debut this week with two new books: “Side Effects” and “Runaways.”

Of course, while Awesomeness Ink isn’t limited to YouTubers working under its banner, we thought it would be fun to imagine the first books from some of AwesomenessTV’s biggest stars. Here are brief synopses for a few of what we think the AwesomenessTV stars’ debut novels should be:
