Oh no wonder HPF can't find it!
I think you'll like it a whole lot more than Twilight... Cal could beat Ed any day! (Especially in a biology class, as someone pointed out on here)

in most schools its not that easy as going "hey I think we should get that book" Librarians have to read the parent reviews, reseach every single book they get, THEN read it and make sure it's aproprate for the school. Then if a student or parent complains even once about it being wrong then it gets pulled from the shelves. Plus there is also the matter of how much money the librarians are given and if they are allowed to order new books. So getting an entire series is very difficult for school libraries. (sorry for the typos)

Lucky for me and my friends we were all friends with the libraryan so every time she was ordering new books she would ask us what we thought she sould get. We even got the school book clube to review Uglies and Peeps.

what does being french have to do with anything? Also, you can buy books and donate them to school libraries.

Mine too. I went to the public library and asked for a good sci-fi teen book and they gave me some Aliens from Mars book that was 12 pages long, had print this big, and said "early reader! I can read with a parent!" on the front.

yes. I very much enjoy them. But when I lived in the middle of nowhere, are school library WAS the public library so you have to take that into consideration. when i lived in HArrisonburg they had the best public library, sigh, I loved that place.
