Had never heard of Wesley Scroggins, butt googled him now. He's calling Kurt Vonnegut's novels soft porn, rediculous isn't it? Then Henry Miller and Marquis de Sade must be hardcore, I presume >:) Cold As Heaven
Here is a link to my review of "Identical" by Ellen Hopkins - I listened to the audiobook (highly recommended format for this one!): http://loveyalit.com/?p=958. Here's to keeping Speak, Twenty Boy Summer, and Slaughterhouse-Five in our schools! All three excellent! I would have loved reading Vonnegut as a teen, but didn't discover him for myself until this past year.
Thanks for Speaking UP!
