Respect the Crossroads of America, because books!
  1. Meg Cabot
    Yes, she wrote Princess Diaries. No, it's not better than All American Girl or those books about the sexy ghost.
  2. James Whitcomb Riley
    Created Orphant Annie, the spirit guide to my childhood.
  3. Jennifer Niven
    Gives props to the highly underrated Vigo County. All the Bright Places is the best book I've read this year.
  4. Haven Kimmel
    Memoirist. Lived an identical childhood to my parents and humorously documented it.
  5. John Green
    He's everything I want and deserve to be.
  6. Kurt Vonnegut
    Admittedly over my head. I may not understand him, but that doesn't mean I don't love the idea of KVonnes.
