Taking The First Step into UnChartered Waters




Welcome to my blog.  I have had the concept of this blog in my mind for 11  years.  I have always loved young adult literature.  It speaks to the adolescent inside of me who wishes she had known about it while being a teenager.  As a teacher, I always tried to connect my students to YAL.  I wanted to create a space to share African-American YAL reviews, create YAL flash fiction stories, and share ideas for using YAL in the classroom and my own personal stories. 

On next Wednesday, I will post my first YAL book review. I hope that everyone, not only teachers and YAL readers will find this site useful.


Until next Wednesday….. 🙂

  1. Congrats on getting started. I’m a SheWrites member too. Welcome.

  2. Congrats on starting your blog! Best of luck and will be looking forward to your first post. 🙂

  3. Love your vision and your desire for the youth. Yes, so important to have good books, good role models. Can’t wait to read more of what’s to come. If you get a chance, stop by my blog and leave a comment– not because I’m craving the attention, but because it might introduce you to new bloggers who would love to see what you’re doing here.
