Skins Series 5: Frankie

Everyone’s been making such a fuss about Skins lately. The MTV one, I mean. Unfortunately, everyone is focusing on issues of obscenity and advertiser pullouts and not, as Meredith Blake pointed out at the AV Club, the fact that the US version of Skins is not very good. It has the look of the UK Skins with none of the heart and guts. But you know what is really good? UK Skins, the new season of which premiered last Thursday.

On My Library Queue

As this is my first post, I will go ahead and introduce myself. My name is Maya, and I love, love, love young adult books. In this space, my friend Rachel (who will introduce herself in a future post) and I will be writing about YA books, and sometimes about movies, television, and music that would also be filed in The Young Adult Department.

To get us started, I’m going to present a sample of books that I have placed on hold at the library, which will be read by me at some future date.
