Last month I wrote a lot about apocalypses and dystopias, a perennial favorite topic here in Parenthetical-land. Those posts, and Presenting Lenore’s Dystopian February, inspired my own theme month:
Welcome to Old-School Apocalypse April!
I’ve been re-reading some childhood favorites from my YA Apocalypse Bookshelf (yes, I really have such a thing). Some hold up brilliantly, some not so much. Stay tuned for more doom-y goodness!
I would say keep me posted, but that’s kind of what a blog is, um, for. Have fun!

MsParenthetical @Alcibiades39 is my hero. Every sentence of "things teachers are sick of hearing from reformers" gets a HELL YES. http://t.co/SBSe4vGTha
MsParenthetical Upshot of this important new rept. on school discipline in MA: it's inconsistent and harshest on kids of color. http://t.co/7WL0mxCljR
MsParenthetical @145lewis @KateMilford Oh yeah, on to advisee #2 for the weekend, and I know who needs it next. This one's going to make the rounds.
MsParenthetical Watched my student finish Greenglass House and freak out from across study hall. Like a dramatic silent film. @KateMilford @145lewis
MsParenthetical I never considered who created @chooseadventure . It was just always there, killing me in horrible ways. RIP, sir. http://t.co/MoP9Ws5o6s
MsParenthetical @AaronStarmer Excellent point, sir!
MsParenthetical Got my ARC of Whisper! (With my quote in the pub materials!) Told my student I get to read it first. #worstteacher @AaronStarmer
