Teen Readers are Awesome.
I didn't either, until I wrote one myself. It's not even out yet, but they're interested and excited and already creating a buzz. They are the biggest champions of YA fiction around, and it's pretty impressive to see.
And she's just one awesome young adult doing this kind of thing. I gotta admit that I'm a bit jealous that there was no world wide web of blogging when I was a teen. I was an avid 4-5 book a week kid and would have loved to have done this kind of thing.
Those of you that think that education and reading and a general passion for good books is dead or waning, check out a few of these sites (each site has links to several others).
These kids are really pretty impressive.
In addition to The Book Scout and The (Teen) Book Scene, here are just a mere few! (feel free to add yours in the comments section if you are reading! :)). If you have kids who are readers, these are the places for them!
