I love YA. I love to read it for myself, I love the fact that it allows me a point of entry with my students. I just love it. This weekend I’ve seen a bunch of tweets with the hashtag #VeryRealisticYA, thought they were amusing, and decided to share a few that I’ve seen recently that I really like.
