Becky (beckyofthe19and9) The premise of this game is pretty simple: We go through the ABC's posting something relating to YA. It could be a book, a series, a character, an event (TriWizard Tournament) an action, etc, as long as it is YA.

So, for example:

Post 1: Airman (by Eoin Colfer)
Post 2: Bartimaeus Trilogy
Post 3: Cornelius Fudge, etc

Once we hit Z, obviously we'd start over from A. :)

Edit: I'm allowing for flexible Q's, X's, Y's and Z's. So, if the word/name/title/event/whatever begins with, contains, or ends with Q, X, Y, or Z it is allowed.
