Flamingnet's mission is to promote reading and writing among young adults; making reading more fun by highlighting
books that young adults may enjoy and fostering literacy through charitable work.
Flamingnet was created in 2002. When I was in fifth grade, I read many different books.
This led me to combine my reading with my father's hobby, computer programming. Gradually I wrote reviews on the books that
I read, and my father posted these reviews on the Internet at Flamingnet. After seeing our
website, national publishers and authors of young adult literature began asking me to review their books. These publishers include Penguin Books, Scholastic, Random House, Simon & Schuster,
Time Warner, and HarperCollins, as well as many other publishers and individual authors. As I received more books to review, Flamingnet
began to accept student reviewers from all over the United States to help with the reviews.
Flamingnet is currently a growing young
adult book website, and my father and I are kept very busy spreading the word about our site and working with
all the reviewers, underwriters (adult volunteers that assist our student reviewers with their writing),
Flamingnet members, authors, publishers, and publicists that have become part of our Flamingnet community.
My grandfather in Florida is also very busy sending out postcards to libraries telling them about my website.
Thank you for visiting Flamingnet!
