YA novels at

I'm finally following up on Michelle's tip about the YA novel reviews at They're pretty fluffy, but often funny, and they tend to be aimed at books that I did, in fact, read as a child, but which never made it into my personal canon -- e.g. Paula Danziger's The Cat Ate My Gymsuit (perhaps one of the best reviews in the series), Ellen Raskin's The Westing Game, and Katherine Paterson's Jacob Have I Loved. It's interesting to be reminded of these books.

Apropos of the recent conference, they also do Alanna and the YA-lit-as-advertising phenomenon.
