no sleep tonight
There is nothing like the excitement of teenage girls... the screaming, squealing screeching and bouncing. It is unique to that group- and although it embarrasses me to admit it, I remember it all too clearly. Of course, there is a time and place for this excitement to be shown- a cute boy passing by... meeting your girlfriends at the mall...finding the perfect shirt to go with your earrings... catching a glimpse of your favorite movie star... and finally having a long awaited book in your hands at midnight. I love that there is such excitement over a book- pages of twists and turns, emotions and characters woven together. I know eight young ladies who will not sleep tonight. They will be turning page after page- sighing and giggling and gasping. It is a beautiful thing- to be in love with books.
