My name is Katie and I am a twenty-six year old Young Adult Librarian/Youth Services Manager. I am extraordinarily passionate about teens and teens in libraries, as well as Young Adult literature. When I was a teen, YA didn’t exist at my library and I read mostly adult books. I like to think that’s the reason I’m so obsessed with YA books now. I’m just trying to make up for lost time.

I also love musicals, writing, and photography. I don’t doubt that those topics will make an occasion appearance on the blog at some point or another. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me!

Hey, my husband and baby and I are going to be downtown on Sunday. I’m not sure exactly where you are in Chicago, but if you’ll be around maybe we could meet up for coffee or something.

Hey I just found your blog by searching for a book I saw in Wal*Mart. I think this is amazing! I too keep track of all the books I read, and I have definite interest in YA Social Issues/Psychology type things. I’m looking forward to going through your list and getting caught up on all the amazing things I’ve missed so far!
