We're looking for all sorts of great things in the months ahead. We've got school visits, conferences, and even a book release. Yes, we're about a month away from the release of FRONT PAGE FACE-OFF by Jo Whittemore! And to celebrate, Jo is running a contest on her very cool blog. All you have to do is tell her what your favorite candy is, and yes, you could win a candy gift certificate. So, if you have a second, head over and take a chance!

- Terry Doherty, Executive Director of The Reading Tub
- Kelly at Yannabe for starting the unsung YA heroes idea.
Please email us your nominations for featured sweethearts!
