Fandom 101: The Raven Cycle
Full disclosure: I adore Maggie Stiefvater's The Raven Cycle series.

Sure, sure, we all have one fandom or another that we keep an eye on (SHERLOCK, Lunar Chronicles, etc.), but Stiefvater's followers began as a small, fairly contained group. Until now. There are fan groups and fan works and fanfic and of course fan art pouring into the fanverse at an outrageous rate. It is definitely a fandom to watch. Particularly, how your teens at your library may engage with The Raven Cycle fandom!
