Liz B. takes issue with the WSJ.

For good reason.

I take issue with the "hordes of young adult readers" bit.  Really?  Peeled?  I thought it was pretty weak, especially for Joan Bauer.

But that's just me.  And I do need to come to terms with the fact that I no longer count as a young adult anyway.

Still, I do not even remotely remember even the slightest out-of-the-ordinary demand for that book.  Which does not suggest "hordes".  I love me some Joan Bauer (usually), but I don't know if any of her books have fallen into the horde-creating category.

Anyway, good catch, Liz.
