[close] If you're looking for the perfect YA group on Goodreads, look no further! In All About YA, we cover pretty much everything that deals with the wonderful Young Adult genre. We have Book Talks on series, standalones, and nonfiction YA books. We have folders set up to define the many subgenres within the YA genre, and you can leave recommendations for other members in those threads. We also read at least one book a month with our Book of the Month read and our Series Reads. We have monthly and yearly challenges that and tons of things to talk about, so our members are never bored! Plus we have some awesome members, so come join us and make friends! There are folders available for YA authors to promote their books, and we even have a folder set up for authors called Read to Review, where you can send members a copy of your book in exchange for an honest review. As with any other Goodreads group, we have a few rules: 1. Treat each other with respect. We have a right to our opinions but please be kind if you disagree with someone. 2. No putting down members. We should all get along. 3. NO CURSING! This simply will not be tolerated. 4. NO CHEATING IN THE GAMES! This means that your posts are final. No editing or having someone else add or remove votes for you. If we find that you are cheating you will be removed from the group. Please play fair. 5. Please hide all spoilers in the discussion forums. We don't want to ruin a book for anyone! 6. HAVE FUN AND ENJOY YOURSELF!
