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….. 🙂
