The Class of 2014 Blogfest is ON




For the past several years (2011, 2012, 2013), Jessica Love, Tracey Neithercott, Katy Upperman, and I have hosted The YA Superlative Blogfest—a fun and interactive way to highlight our favorite YA novels, covers, characters, and story elements. It's always amazing fun and we are gearing up to host it AGAIN!  
 
Tracey designed our button and banner, guys. One word: AMAZING!!!
