Once upon a time, in a land blighted by terror, there was a very clever boy. People thought the boy could save them, so they opened their gates and sent him out into the world-- to where the monsters lived.
I am a youth services librarian and was a teen librarian for over 15 years. I have had the pleasure of serving on a variety of national teen book award committees, including the Michael Printz Award for Excellence in Young Adult Literature. When I am not reading all things teen literature, I am hanging out with my crazy kitties, Callie and Ricky Bobby, and rooting for the Oklahoma Sooners (OK-born and bred).
