Hi! I'm Aimee from PA. I have participated in at least 5 First Look discussions, including the last teen selection, Hush, Hush! Reading is a passion of mine, and I am happy to say that several of my 8th grade students will be joining the discussion boards with me this time around. I cannot wait to see what they think! It is good to be back after having to take a break from participating in the book clubs. It seems as if there are many new individuals to the boards this time...welcome! It is a wonderful group, one I am sure that you will enjoy! I have been confirmed and now am anxiously awaiting delivery so I can start reading Enjoy All!
I was wondering where all those people from the same area in PA were coming from. That's terrific!

Hey, I am an 8th grader in Mrs.Blochberger's CA class. I have not been in a first look book club and I am excited to join. I read hush hush from my teacher's library. I enjoyed it thoroughly and can't wait to read this book to! I’m hoping it will be a great experience. I enjoy reading great books that are exciting and have romance in it along with action. I love books with a good meaning and moral to it. I hope that this book is something to look forward to.

Hey, I'm Brianna from Pennsylvania. Jodi Piccoult's a great author just saying! I recommend reading her books! I love reading, and I've read Hush Hush and loved it! Damen's awesome (he was a little creepy at first, just saying)! So I hope I get confirmed so I can read this book, Before I Fall.
Everything happens for a reason.

Hello everyone! My name is Kayla. This is my second first look book club. I am currently a student in college and enjoy reading during every little break that I can get. I really enjoy good teen novels and am always looking for new books to read. Looking forward to starting the discussion!

What is the Hanger Games series? I love reading series as one book just doesn't seem to be enough in a story line.
Well HELLO to all the eighth graders in PA! Guess what im in eighth grade too!!!! I hope everyone enjoys the book Before I Fall because I am very excited to get a FREE book that is a ARC (Advanced Reader Copy). And to anyone who doesnt know what The Hunger Games are heres a synopsis
In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV. Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she is forced to represent her district in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead before-and survival.
It is one of the best series I have ever read and is good for boys and girls. I HIGHLY reccomend everyone to read it. You wont be dissapointed!!

This is my first time to sign up for a YA First Look book, and I'm really looking forward to it, especially with its paranormal twist.

I'm Paige and I'm a college student currently focusing on my general studies right now. Someday, I hope to become a doctor if all goes as planned.
I'm really excited to be reading Before I Fall and to be discussing about it in the future. It's my first time joining a book club so I hope it all goes well. I really love reading. For awhile, I went through a phase where I hardly read at all. Now that I'm in college, reading is required almost everyday. Because of that, I started picking up books again and am really happy that I did. Reading definitely makes the world go 'round. I'm excited!
