I am so, so, SO excited to share that I have a piece in this month's School Library Journal. It's all about horror in YA, and it not only offers up a huge reading list for recent horror titles -- everything published within the last two years or so -- but it also talks about whether or not horror is the "next big thing" in YA. I talked with a couple of YA editors for this piece, as well as an author, and I think it all came together quite well (after a lot of work with a very patient editor).
But can we talk about the real story here? That illustration! It's amazing and perfect for the story. I want to hang it on my wall. I'm going to be spending a little time exploring what else Kim Rosen has done.
If you get the chance to read the story, I hope you enjoy it. And if you don't get the chance to read it in print, I believe it will eventually be available online. I'll link to it if/when it does.
