Current Song: Come to My Garden from The Secret Garden

readergirlz diva Justina Chen Headley cordially invites GuysLitWire over to the readergirlz forum. She says, in part:

We at readergirlz are so thrilled that you’re online, helping guys find great books!

As you know, we girlz are complicated. Okay, make that waaay complicated. On this thread are books that we wish guys would read to understand what's going on with us.


She then asks the readergirlz to list YA novels they wish all guys would read to understand girls. She starts off with Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson and Just Listen by Sarah Dessen, and others have added more titles by the likes of Maureen Johnson, Louise Rennison, and Stephenie Meyer.

Please join us and make it a two-way street - Tell us what YA novels you wish girls would read to understand guys, and vice-versa! Also tell us what YA novels "get" BOTH sides of the story.

If you're not yet a part of readergirlz and GLW, you should be. They've got their fingers on the pulse of book news and YA readers. Both actively promote literacy, acknowledge that teens read adult fiction and adults read YA, and welcome and encourage feedback from readers of all ages.
