young adult literature
Does your library divide books? One local library has a teen nook where you’ll find the teenage protagonists in books by Ellen Hopkins and John Green and Lauren Oliver.
Except for Leisl and Po, the Lauren Oliver book in the young adult section, a middle-grade novel about ghosts.
The Hunger Games is dual-shelved.
Does your library do this?
Isn’t it the hardest thing to be waiting for someone to get to the really good part of a novel? You know, waiting until they read that part that makes you want to scream, that part that makes you want to shout words your mother doesn’t like, that part that rips the heart into ticker tape confetti!??!
It’s so hard to read next to someone who is sipping The Fault in our Stars like it s a really expensive wine….
When it’s over, we’ll discuss it over a real glass of something in stemmed glasses.
While I am using YouTube as my personal DJ, I think….
Wouldn’t it be cool if books came with soundtracks?
What would be on the soundtrack to The Fault in our Stars?
(ok, I admit I’m crossing a bit of my genre boundary, but still….)
