Yes, I'm a former middle school English teacher, so I read a lot of young adult fiction. That's pretty much all I read, and I read a lot. So when it came time to put Miss E. on Amazon, I put together a list of books that I thought were similar - for various reasons. And I looked that the categories those books were placed in. Although I'd come up with a wide variety of books, I started to see some trends in the categoies those books were in.

Bets was supposed to be going on an adventurous trip across the county with he... Read more of this blog post »
