Comment of the Month - January!

Every Thursday we ask you a teen-related question and then on the last Saturday of the month (or, er, Sunday, if you're Jess and you're running ridiculously late) we choose the month's best comment and the author gets to dive into our vault, Scrooge McDuck-style. (Or you can pick the book of your choice from BookDepository!)

Swim through the books!

Here are the questions we asked this month:

And this month's awesome commenter is:


Who said, in response to raving about an unsung YA book:

My pick would also be The Sea of Tranquility. It's incredibly written, thought provoking, and absolutely beautiful. But since Sara already praised it, I'll go with The Hallowed Ones by Laura Bickle as the most underappreciated book. Great story about a sheltered Amish girl who discovers an injured English guy in a feild and despite her elder's warnings and the threat of being shunned, she nurses him back to health while developing a firendship with him. She defies all the things she's been taught simply becuase she wanted to do what was right, not what was expected of her. You experience the challenges she does as she discovers that the world outside her little village has been innundated with people who have gotten a terrible virus causing vampirism. And they are really scary vampires who tear humans apart and leave nothing alive in their wake. The book had me gasping aloud and on the edge of my seat in suspense and the romance...well let's just say that the elders did not approve.

Thanks for the awesome comment, Edwards BloodType! That book sounds awesome, and I'd never heard of it before! Just shoot us an email and let us know if you want a book from The Vault, or if you want the book of your choice from Book Depository!
