For You, Lurlene

I had to read a Lurlene McDaniel book for my Adolescent Lit class. We've got to survey the good, the bad, and the ugly, people.

As restitution for my suffering, I'd just like to take a moment to openly mock Lurlene McDaniel.

Actually, it's the easiest thing I will do today. I will reproduce here, verbatim, her "You'll Want to Read These Other Inspiring Novels by Lurlene McDaniel" list. The mockery will then be perfectly self-inflicted.

Annie said... this makes me just...feel sympathetic. for someone, or someones? i don't know. just vaguely sad and sorry. maybe for the world at large?

it is also hilarious. and it also makes me want to go to barnes and noble and throw up on the "kaka" portion of the young adult lit section.
