So I just found out that I'm going to have the opportunity to meet with a group of teenagers at my local high school to talk about books, writing, and YA fiction. They are all avid readers and have voluntarily connected with their teachers to be included in this group.
If you're a YA author who'd like to get swag or books in front of real teens in real time, email me or DM me on twitter and I can send you my address. I will happily pass out bookmarks, pens, any kind of swag, or do spot giveaways of books (paperbacks only, sorry!).
Alternatively, if you have specific questions you'd like me to ask them regarding their thoughts as readers, I'm happy to do that too (time permitting).
Our first meeting is on September 16th. I'm not sure when the next will be after that, so if you're wanting to send materials, please get in touch asap on aimee (at) aimeelsalter (dot) com or you're welcome to tweet me if you have short questions (@aimeelsalter).
Look forward to hearing from you,

I dont have much to go on but a bulk of her books his based on teanage problems. One of her books starts of with this girls whose bou friend keeps asking her to have sex with till he finally gives up and "excepts" it then this new girl comes in to their school and they befriend her. Her boyfriend work as like a part time gardener or something and she goes to visit him and catches him having sex with the new girl. He tries to sprout some bull about him doing it for her benefit because he really wanted to experience and now that he has or something it's all good and she can stay a virgin. The other one I know less on this girl is in love with her boyfriend forever but since his mother died he has really changed hanging out with the wrong people a heavily drinking. He's staying at a friends house one day and shes goes to pick him up one day because he was suppose to come over her parents for Christmas dinner or something and when she gets there he's drunk. She goes to make coffee to sober him up and the friend he's stayin with tries to rape her and he's to drunk to notice but luckily her little puppy she has was there to help her but gets stab in the pocess. Do any one recognizes these stories and can tell me what they are called and who wrote them.
