I think if we want to do this, we gotta split up the categories. Because, seriously, teenlit is a very broad topic! I'm not a romantic comedy teenlit kind of person (I mean, I love romance, and I love wit, but those $3.47 Walmart paperbacks with cartoon covers of girls on shopping sprees don't do it for me), so it would be a total bummer to have to craft to that sort of thing (well, not really, but when compared to crafting for my favourite book?). So if enough people are interested in Scott Westerfeld's books, I'd totally run a swap like that over the summer or something. Doing a couple of swaps right now, send-outs past/soon. Maybe a fantasy/science fiction teenlit swap (no Harry Potter/Chronicles of Narnia/huge young adult epic movie-makers like that), maybe including but not limited to:

Francesca Lia Block (I was a Teenage Fairy, Weetzie Bat, etc.)
Orson Scott Card (Ender's Game and stuff, fun-fun)
Diane Duane (So You Want To Be A Wizard?)
Dianna Wynne Jones (Howl's Moving Castle, woot!)
Garth Nix (Shade's Children, Abhorsen series, etc.)
Tamora Pierce (Animals and pirates and knights, oh my!)
Scott Westerfeld (Just finished Specials and OH. MY. CRAP.)

Things you could send/craft to:
Favourite quotes, how the book affected you, a list of similar books, distinct objects/people/animals

I think I am up for it!

Dianna Wynne Jones? Bring it on!

Does Stephanie Meyers count? I love Twilight!

Frozenboogereatr, I was betting on a pretty extensive questionnaire.  Wink  And maybe you could list any kind of books you absolutely wouldn't want to craft for.
Personally, I won't be satisfied with anything less than an Adundance of Katherines diorama and an Amelia Atwater-Rhodes stuffie  Grin

Oh, but John Green couldn't not be included, mllejessy! I would need my Ned Vizzini and Maureen Johnson as well. I have never organised for a swap myself, I just assume that it's exTREMEly hard to sort out who is best for who, especially when the subject area is so broad! So whether you want to split the categories of real-life and fantasy/sci-fi (but where would Devilish and Be More Chill fall? I suppose they would have to be fantasy/sci-fi), or you are confident in a thorough questionnaire, I'm in.
