Teen Read Week and The Luxe.

In honor of teen read week, and having just finished THE LUXE, I took the "Who is your Luxe boy" quiz @ http://www.harperteen-theluxe.com/luxe.html and my result is Will Keller. As for girls, my results say I am Diana Holland, who happens to be my favorite ;)

About Teen Read Week

Teen Read Week is an initiative of the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA). Teen Read Week started in 1998.

Why is it important to celebrate? For a lot of reasons! Teens have so many options for entertainment, so it's important to remind them to spend time reading for pleasure: it's free, fun, and can be done anywhere! Research shows that teens who read for fun have better test scores and are more likely to succeed in the workforce. Also, it’s a great chance to let your school or your public library communities know how important teen services are! Let teens know the possibilities that exist within your doors, and within the covers of books.

If you have other questions, please take a look at our most frequently asked questions or email YALSA.

I saw a post on twitter about teen week and think it's the coolest thing ever! It's nice to see YA Writers/Characters get some great attention!
