Library Lovin’ Blogger Challenge

The wonderful YA author Jenn Hubbard (The Secret Year, 2010) is once again spearheading a fundraiser for libraries across the country. I’ve agreed to donate a dollar for every comment I receive below.

To which library will I donate? I’m lucky enough to live in an area that can still buy books, so I am going to defer to one of my favorite teen activists for libraries:  Skyanne.  She blogs at Harmony Book Reviews and is the organizer of the awesome Bring YA 2 PA. I am totally inspired by Skyanne’s enthusiasm and organizational skills! So this year Skyanne will decide which library gets a signed copy of Forget-Her-Nots and any money your comments earn.  Comment away!

Jenn’s Challenge is here.


  • Pay up!

  • Forget-Her-Nots is a truly delightful book. It combines the excitement and anxiety of life as a teenage girl with interesting facts about the magical language of flowers. As someone well out of her teenage years, it reminded me how thankful I am that those years are over, but at the same time, brought back fond memories of the friendships developed during those years. Since reading this book, I have come to realize that flowers can bring people together and strengthen the bonds of friendship for a lifetime.
