What 2009 YA Book Should I Read?
Okay. The time has come, the walrus something something something.
Each year I read one YA novel. Just one. In theory anyway. So far I’ve already read Fire, Catching Fire, and Leviathan (which should really have had the word "fire" in its title in some way). This year I turn to you, o smart readers. You are not like me. You do not cruelly cut yourself off at age 12 when it comes to your reading material. So here is the million dollar question:
If you had to suggest that I read only ONE YA novel this year, what would it be?
Leave your comment on this post. Failing that, send me an email. I’ll wait until this post disappears from the front page of my blog, then tally the results and announce the book in question. Exciting! I have absolutely no idea where your little hearts lie. Inform me!
