What a Girl Wants, Chasing Ray

Colleen Mondor of the esteemed blog Chasing Ray is launching a series titled What a Girl Wants.

Here's her intent:

"(W)what I'd really like to hear now is what other people think about the current status of books for teen girls and what it says about both what they want to read and what publishers think they want to read. Now here's the cool part - the list of the authors who agreed to take part in an occasional round of questions about girls and reading. They are all fabulous and they all have opinions and they all were once teenage girls (that part was kinda critical). Starting next week on a varying schedule I'll be posting a single question and then their answers as we talk about what a girl wants - and what she gets - when it comes to reading."

The posts will include authors:

Margo Rabb,
Sara Ryan,
Jacqueline Kelly,
Loree Griffin Burns,
Zetta Elliott,
Beth Kephart,
Laurel Snyder,
Mayra Lazara Dole,
Melissa Wyatt,
Kekla Magoon,
Jenny Davidson,
and me!

Go, Colleen. I can't wait to participate in this summer project!
