Stephanie Meyer in the Wall Street Journal.
"As a kid, reading was my favorite thing. A ton of kids tell me, "I never read much before this. I only did it for school." You have to get kids the right book. You need to give them something in the classroom to remind them that books are also entertainment."
I've never read the series and YA isn't really my thing. My vampires have a bit more bite in them. But this is clearly her day, and perhaps her year.
Full marks to Meyer for stating the both the obvious and the revolutionary.
