This Week at TLT
Remember what it was like to be 14? It should help you understand why books like Rainbow Rowell’s Eleanor and Park are so important to today’s teens.
And a guest post by Kearsten recommending books that bite back – When You’re Tired of Emo Vamps.(Which mentions one of my very most favorite takes on vampires – by Scott Westerfeld!)

Around the Web
The National Book Award longlist for young adult literature was announced – have you read any of these? Let us know!
Oh, North Carolina, no. (It’s getting embarrassing to live here.)
The Onion posted an article that I’m considering printing out to save for my nephew when he reaches his late teens…
Rainbow Rowell is more than just a great writer – read her take on censorship and her novel Eleanor and Park.
And Malinda Lo being smart about diversity in YA fiction (as always.)
