    Hey, Carrie I recently came upon your website and found it very funny. You have no idea how glad I was to find your page about the Brooding YA Hero.I find it very shocking how most YA books these days have now turned into fanfiction for young women that always seem to have to the same “plot”.

    Kind Regards,
