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.
