I am so excited to write my first post on ReadingYA.com! This blog will have many components...book reviews on YA books (complete with Advisory Ratings from me...more on that in a future post), links to popular YA authors, information about upcoming YA releases, resources to help parents and students find YA books, etc.
As a high school librarian, mother and life-long reader I feel uniquely qualified to offer insights into the content of YA books. When I started my job, I knew some parents would keep a tight watch on what their children read...what I wasn't prepared for was the fact that some students wanted to know the "appropriate-ness" of books. I follow many blogs and have yet to see concise information on a books' content. That's where I come in!
Thank you for visiting...I hope you find this blog helpful and entertaining!
