I teach junior high Language Arts, and lots of my teenaged girl students are really into the Twilight series by Stephanie Meyer (I have read them, too, on their recommendation, and I have to admit that I understand the appeal). It's so great to see them so excited about reading. Anyway, they've asked me for recommendations for what to read next, and I'm kind of at a loss. Anyone here have any ideas?
I think the vampire thing interests them, but I think it's the overall tone and excitement of the books that appeals to them.
