  52. I love dystopian books. I find them scarier than regular "horror" books. Big Brother seems a little too close for comfort some times!

    I don't have an official library but I teach 5th grade and have a miniature library in my Texas classroom.

  54. Wowza! Sounds like a great book. I'd love to read it and then pass it along to the high school librarian - our school campuses are right next to each other. Thanks for your LM-NET post alerting us to the giveaway!

  58. Sigh. I love YA. I'm an elementary librarian so I don't get to read many YA books because the guilt sets in. When I grow up I would love to be a high school librarian.

  59. Looks like a good fit for my book club students, especially. Dystopian future, vampire romance or zombies, steampunk or a mash-up of any of these and my kids will read it and report on it.
