Reading as of Now:
There is something wonderful about the genre of 'Teen Fiction'. Whilst there is indeed a lot of crap out there, some authors just get it. Melina Marchetta is one such author. Wonderful books, that have such depth to them, despite the target-audience and to cap it off are beautifully written. Piper's Son is the sequel to Saving Francesa. It is fantastic and any work that manages to incorporate emails into a narrative and keep it all moving along in a smooth way is very, very, very skilled writing. It makes you cry, it makes you laugh and it makes you want to know and love these people. Read it.
