This is Not a YA Cafe Post…

Posted in YA Cafe

…or is it?

Welcome Back to YA Cafe, where book lovers can gather and chat about teen literature.  I’m your barista, along with Ghenet from All About Them Words.

Each Friday we pick from a menu of topics and share our thoughts on our respective blogs.  We’ve also got plans brewing for interviews, events and even some exciting giveaways, so stay tuned!  Join the discussion by responding in the comments, on your own blogs or on twitter using the hash tag #yacafe.

Ha ha, fooled ya!  In honor of April Fools Day, YA Cafe is doing another giveaway!  This time it’s a joke contest!

Today’s Special: If your favorite YA character had a theme song, what would it be?


Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games — “I Will Survive”
Mia from If I Stay — “Should I Stay or Should I Go”
Edward from Twilight — “Another One Bites the Dust”

Tell us your favorite YA characters and their theme songs in the comments (here or at All About Them Words) and Random.org will pick a winner.  If you give us multiple jokes, you get multiple entries.  It’s that simple.  Contest is open until 11:59pm Eastern Time on Wednesday, April 6th.

One lucky winner will get a SIGNED copy of R.L. Stine’s Bitten (which is actually two books in one: Dangerous Girls & The Taste of Night).

Ghenet and I got a chance to meet Mr. Stine at SCBWI and he’s super-nice, not to mention really funny!  Here’s a picture of the two of us with him.

Want to see more April Fools jokes?  Fellow barista, Ghenet is co-hosting this same contest at her blog: All About Them Words.  Check it out, then join the fun by entering the contest!
