Our Mission

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.

Since beginning Flamingnet in 2002, we rebranded our edtech concept to improve our eBook offerings and our ability to facilitate the use of our site for book clubs and classrooms. This rebranded concept has become LitPick. Please visit us at

LitPick Student Book Reviews

where you can find over 6,000 student book reviews and much more!

LitPick is currently a growing young adult book website, and our team is 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), members, authors, publishers, and publicists that have become part of our community.

Thank you for visiting Flamingnet and LitPick!
