A middle aged, middle school librarian from the Midwest, I've been blogging since 2006 at Ms. Yingling Reads. My students are impressed that I've read every hardcover fiction book in our school library, but it was really an evil plan to be allowed to read to my heart's content and be able to tell people to stop bugging me because I'm WORKING. I was on the Cybils' middle grade fiction panel in 2011, the middle grade science fiction/fantasy panel in 2010, and review for Young Adults Books Central. When I'm not reading, I'm coaching middle school cross country and planning travel based on books. Prince Edward Island is my next stop, since a phantom tollbooth has never been dropped into my living room!
