I've caught up on all my blogs, there were some fab posts this week. I wanted to win Joanne Fritz's Divergent giveaway something fierce. I like to think I just missed it. Cheers to the girl who made the YouTube video. I love dystopia. I can't wait for this book.
Has anyone read any great Middle Grade dystopia? Minus The Giver (love that book).
