As a middle school Reading and ESL teacher in Texas, I have fallen in love with books written for teens and young adults. My favorite books are “coming of age” stories about young people on the difficult road of self-discovery.
As a mother of four and a Christian woman, my concern is to know what is available to my own children and to my students because only the best will do for all my kids.
I am interested in providing a resource to help others make informed decisions. Teachers and parents want to know the facts so that they can intelligently discuss teen and YA books with their students and children. Teens want the facts to help them choose what they read from the bookstore and library.
Please join me in sticking to the facts. People are entitled to their opinions, but the goal of this blog is to provide a forum for the exchange of information. This is not a book review site in the usual sense; opinions about a book will take second place to facts about content.
So, welcome! Your suggestions and comments are valuable. Your knowledge, together with the knowledge of others, is priceless. Let’s share what we know and create something incredible.
