  2. Welcome to the YA Challenge! I'm glad you decided to give challenges another chance. There's NO PRESSURE to finish. The focus is to enjoy our reads. Even if you only read's one more than you had read before. :)

  3. Staying Fat for Sarah Byrnes is such a great book. I hope you enjoy it! Happy Reading!
