Welcome teachers, librarians, and parents!  Many of the books that I've reviewed on this blog are great for classroom and bookclub discussions.  Below I've listed some of my favorite teen books that have received starred reviews and various awards.
If you are an educator or librarian and want to know more about these books or any other books that I've reviewed, feel free to email me.  As someone who was allowed to read whatever I wanted when growing up, it's important to note that I do not believe in censoring books; however, I will be up front about any mature content.

I look forward to hearing from you!
