Riley, we are new tweeting companions. YOu say you have my book. Which one? (-:

I am excited to meet you. Think you should connect with Dallas Franklin, another of my favorite young writers. Not as young as you but she's doing lots of great things for young writers. When you find her by Googling, feel free to use my name.

A lot of those books are on my favorites list too. And most of the others are on my to-read.

Have you read I am the Messenger by Markus Zusak? I love that book.
