Twitter is not only a great place to share things your passionate about but it’s a great place to have conversations and create connections. One of the things that I love about Twitter is being able to connect to authors about their books. Nothing gets me more excited than for an author to retweet, favorite and even respond to one of my tweets! This experience never would have happened before Twitter. Many YA authors engage with their readers and I had this great experience with Andrew Smith while I was reading his book Winger.
These experiences create a connection to the author and I always go back to my students and share the experience, especially when I am recommending books to them.
A student told me today the best book she’s read all year is Winger! Love that I connected her with such awesomeness!!!! @marburyjack

I recently finished The Last Time We Say Goodbye which had me in tears. Loved this tweet from Cynthia Hand.
