Meet Jackie Parker, Young Adult Fiction Organizer

Jackie P 1,091. Thatโ€™s how many teen-written reviews Jackie read over the summer. Actually it's more, but we won't count the ones that were plagiarized. Of course, this was done in between Harry Potter parties, tie-dying, book bowls, copious amounts of slimy plaster, writing clubs, and making teenagers put petroleum jelly on their noses. Despite former panelist's opinions, she is not the Mistress of the Universe, nor has she had anything to do with DoDA, but she is, in addition to the YA Fiction Cybils organizer, co-host of the 5th Annual Kidlitosphere Conference in Seattle this fall. She looks forward to autumn for many reasons, but mostly for the resurgence of the Cybils. She blogs at Interactive Reader.
