About meA high school librarian with a penchant for history and current events.

About my libraryI am fascinated with the changing genres in Young Adult literature but I have lost my taste for the simplicity and drama of YA Lit. I enjoy reading sophisticated well written adult literature with interesting characters. Plus history and biography.

Noticed you liked The Glass Castle, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my new novel and posting your comments here as well as a few other book-related sites. Thought you might like my book since it's also about a dysfunctional family (and also a bit dark). I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like (I'm out of physical copies at the moment). Let me know if you're interested. Here's a link to a summary in case you're interested:
