Something for the Young Adult Readers...

Almost every teen in the country is reading the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer. If you stop in to the library hoping to see one of her books on the shelf, good luck! No sooner does one come across the circulation desk, than it's off to be read (or re-read) by someone else. However, we are happy to assure all of our Teen Readers that we actually do have other books on our shelves just waiting to be taken out and given the chance to become the next best-loved tale.

So, for those teenagers who enjoy reading about mythical vampires and fantastical faeries; and for those who enjoy books about normal teenage kids experiencing normal teenage stuff... here are some
reads to try:
  • Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson
