TRW Tribute: Telika Howard, 6:00 AM

Out of the Miry Clay


YALSA'S Teen Read Week is one of the best promotion of reading I have seen. They pick the books that are new and interesting and encourages teens to read in the best kind of way! Teen Read Week 2009 will be celebrated Oct. 18-24! This year's theme is Read Beyond Reality @ your library, which encourages teens to read something out of this world, just for the fun of it.

Also thanks to readergirlz who will be posting a tribute to Teen Read week along with a link to blogs who mention why they love Teen Read Week and their favorite book!

My favorite book is of course my new YA/teen fictional urban book I recently published Out of the Miry Clay! It is a unique coming of age story both physically and spiritually and answers the question what's the difference between our dreams and our purpose through the main character, a 19 yr old female living in the inner city.
