The July Readergirlz issue is now available. Readergirlz, founded by YA authors Lorie Ann Grover, Dia Calhoun, Janet Lee Carey, and Justina Chen Headley, celebrates gutsy girls in life and literature. The July issue of Readergirlz focuses on FUN. To that end, the book of the month is Goy Crazy, by Melissa Schorr. The accompanying community challenge is to register at BookCrossing, hardly a strenuous effort, but one that helps bring books to many people. This issue also includes an interview with Melissa Schorr, a recommended playlist, and some intriguing discussion questions. I haven't read Goy Crazy yet, but I do have some first-hand experience in dating across cultures, and I'm sure that I'll enjoy the book and the discussion.
Along with Little Willow, Jackie, Miss Erin, and Alexia, I'm a Postergirl for Readergirlz. The Postergirlz are working together to help the Readergirlz divas come up for book suggestions for future months. If you have any favorite YA titles that feature gutsy girls, let us know.
