Teens who read are just better than teens who don't. Okay, don't shoot me - they do have stronger vocabs, understand what they read better, and tend to do better in college.
I was a teen to read ... constantly :) Being a YA Librarian would be one of the best jobs I could think of ... and I love "stalking" that section of the library for all sorts of great books.
I love to read YA and I'm a Teen Advocate. If you are too, check out how to buy and wear these pins proudly!
