African American Read in Today!

Posted on 20 February 2011 Sunday

Good morning!

The African American Read In is today! Ari has questions up and will be posting more later today. There will also be a discussion on Twitter. I’ll come back and post the # we’ll be using so that posts will be easy to follow throughout the day.  I’m liking #bleedingreadin .  I think Ari will post more questions as the day moves on.

I finished my first reading of the book last night. I really think it ought to have been an adult book. To me, Hanna didn’t feel like a teen. While the bizarre-ness of the book was entertaining, I don’t think  casual sex is a good message in YA and I’d even say at times life itself was a bit too casual. No doubt, Reeves is a talented writer!!  Not just any writer could maintain such cohesion in a book with invisible doors, protective swans, glyphs, earphones, Finnish and Ragsie. Now, let me think: Hanna or Wyatt’s mom? I’m off to the discussion!
