That's All Folks....or is it?

Year two was a much more lean, not really mean fighting machine! We made most of our blog deadlines and were able to a pick a winner - A MONSTER CALLS without having to bully too many people. We lost one of our bloggers to a backyard fire and his bone breaking work to stop it - only you Brad! We had people change job, drop in and drop out but overall of this we came together (cue the beautiful harp music) as a community of readers.

Arlene and I thank all of our bloggers for joining in and we hope to see you back again - please don't stop being a voice for young adult literature in education. We thank our readers (unless that is all Arlene hitting refresh in which case....thanks Arlene!) and welcome your comments.

Will there be a SMACKDOWN the triplet edition..............of course! Look for the SMACK to fly again in the fall. Interested?  Contact either Arlene or myself: or
