Just my opinion, parents shouldn't read teen lit. I managed to prevent my mom and dad from reading UGLIES, but they read the Hunger Games series and my mom read the Barcode Tattoo series. Guess I need to work harder. My mom said that when my Mockingjay book arrives she won't give the package to me until she's read it.  ::)

maybe she wanted to read it first because she likes it

I tried to get my dad to read Leviathan, but he doesn't read much so it didn't work.  :( And my mom would be even harder to convince.

I actually got Team David and Pat-la into it, and we're gonna have my best friend soon, as soon as Pat-la returns the books (he's re-reading them).
