51118 I'm 80 pages in to the first one. Saw the movie and am thinking the book will be better.

51118 Hi,
I'm Tammi and I'm 34. I have my MLIS and was an elementary school librarian for two years before I was laid off. I'm now back with my school district but as a 7th/8th grade Reading/Math teacher. I miss being a librarian, but hopefully I will get back in to it someday. I love YA fiction, all genres. The best book I read in 2011 was Divergent.
51118 Oh but I have to say that the cover isn't going to get the attention of teens at all (I'm a teacher/librarian). Too bad because this is something that teens should be aware of and reading about.
51118 I liked it a lot, gave it four stars, but wasn't blown away by it. I didn't even cry which is rare for me. I don't know, I didn't feel all that connected with the characters. It was interesting to me as my Dad's Dad was from Lithuania. I never met him and I don't know much about Lithuanian history at all. I guess they skip over the Baltic in school, sadly. I even minored in history in college, and I knew nothing about this. I wonder if this is why my ancestors left Lithuania, it very well could have been during this time period, or about 10 years prior.

Anyway, I think it was a good pick and I'm glad I read it, thank you!
