TRW Tribute: Melissa Walker 12:15

"Every week should be teen read week, of course. I myself like to hop into at least two book worlds each week. It's not that I don't like my own life, it's just that other people's are fascinating too. Especially book peoples, be they just like me or magical or historical or hilarious or brooding or confused or enlightened. A reading week is a week of around-the-world-and-out-of-it travel!"
