I just finished reading an interesting article from the New York Times this morning about helping boys to become "readers" (Boys and Reading, Is There Any Hope?). There is no question that there is a huge output of Young Adult fiction today. In fact, as the article mentions, it seems as if the genre of Young Adult fiction is surpassing the interest in Adult fiction today. This made me think of The Hunger Games (Suzanne Collins) trilogy. I still cannot get those characters out of my mind. The Hunger Games has moved toward the top of my "all-time" favorites list, for sure.
