My name is Laura. I'm 34 and a single mom. I have a 13-year-old daughter who I talk to about the First Look book club all the time. I always tell her how good all the books are and how much fun I have posting and reading everyone's thoughts. Hopefully she and I can both read this book and discuss it with you all.
It looks like we have a great mix of different people to share their opinions. Can't wait to be a part of it!

I am Luanne. I am in my mid 50's, so on the older end of the group.
My kids are now in their 20's and I loved to read all the books that they did in the YA group.
I see many familiar names here. It is good to see all age groups represented.
Looking forward to the discussion.

I'm Mary Jo, a married mom of two boys: ages 10 & 5. Twilight series started me on my YA novel kick and I'm currently reading through the Cirque Du Freak series (Darren Shan)
I am also a creative writing teacher for YA, so this is a perfect fit. (Hope to meet many YA writers and readers here)
What a great idea!

I am Lynn from Milwaukee, WI. I like to read most genres but I truly love YA even though I am 39. When I was young Go Ask Alice was so shocking to me and really scared me off drugs. Then I was hooked on the V.C. Andrews which many teens/tweens got into. I am now teaching and I find reading YA helps to connect with the students in the class. You see them as real people struggling- and there are also those wonderful opportunities to discuss the books with students when you see them reading the same thing.

Hello everyone! I'm Lana, in my early 40's, wife and mom of 5, three of which are YA. I love reading Harry Potter and other YA novels as well as almost anything else. I have enjoyed the First Look Book Club and I am looking forward to this one too. I have bragged about it so much, that my oldest daughter has also requested to read this one too! I am very excited to have received my confirmation today and look forward to reading everyone's posts.

I am now probably the oldest --I will be 62 in December. I have 3 children and 3 grandchildren.. I taught school and worked in the children/ young adult section of a library.
I have found many many books for YA extremely well written and enjoyable.
i consider myself to be old in age but I am young in spirit. I often am shocked when i see my reflection --since in my mind I feel young --then I see those few gray hairs !!!
It is true you are as young as you FEEL in your heart.
Am looking forward to discussion with all age groups.

No problem with the shipping, Amanda. Thank you.
Hi! My name is Amanda and I am 28 y/o. I got started on YA novels with Harry Potter, then Twilight. I read HP when the first novel originally came out, so I have been a long time fan. I also love reading urban fantasy novels. I comment a lot in the paranormal/urban fantasy book club here. Can't get enough of them.
I am in the Air Force and am currently stationed in S. Korea. I am really looking forward to reading this book, it looked really interesting. I just hope it will ship to an APO (overseas) address!!!
Nice meeting everyone.Message Edited by angelcloud529 on 08-04-2009 12:01 AM
