But why no classics?
Everyone always raves about the classics. Teachers. Parents. Colleges. Librarians. SAT's. Jeopardy... But what about Rick Riordan, Jay Asher, Marissa Meyer, Rick Yancey, Cassandra Clare, Sarah J. Maas, or John Green? Even S.E. Hinton or Sarah Dessen? These are the REAL problems for the REAL people of today. But, no one will let go of the idea of "the classics!"
(This goes against all of my reasoning.)
...I resolve, in 2016, to replace 5 or 6 (depending on the polls) classics with, here's where you come in, a contemporary replacement.
WAIT I need your help! Post a book you love or dislike and see me try and replace it. If you want to just drop off a suggestion at the library desk, that's fine too. I'm talking books like "Hamlet" or "Scarlet Letter." There is no way that anyone can replace "The Diary of Anne Frank" or any other first hand events of history.
And keep a look out for my challenge updates.
