Teen Book Club Happenings

April 29, 2015

April's Teen Book Club meeting was a success! We made duct tape pouches and discussed Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson and The Young Elites by Marie Lu. Everyone decided that these were both books worth reading! For May we'll be reading Gabi, A Girl in Pieces by Isabel Quintero and The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater. Quintero just won the William C. Morris YA Debut Award for Gabi, A Girl in Pieces and Stiefvater has an incredible social media presence. You can check her out on Twitter @mstiefvater.
