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.

We weren't concerned about the headlines announcing the demise of the "offical" Woodstock 50. We already had our tickets for three more days of Peace and Music. We made our own festival by grabbing tickets to Arlo Guthrie, Ringo Starr, and Santana.
