I can make recommendations based on previous books read. I will not answer homework questions along the lines of "What is the theme of this book?" or "How should I write my essay about the relationship between these two characters on structuralist terms?" While I might recommend adult novels for YA readers if I find them appropriate, I can't be relied on to answer questions or recommend only adult titles. I'm happy to try and find a book you read long ago if you can give me any details or clues about it. I can also provide teachers/librarians/other professionals who work with children and young adults with recommended titles based on curriculum needs.
I have reviewed books for years, mostly at BookReporter.com, TeenReads.com, and KidsReads.com. I am doing graduate level work on this subject and also consider it a personal hobby.

I have a BA in creative writing with minors in music and Spanish. Currently I am at work on an MA in children's literature and an MS in library science.
