Teen Read Week Part 1

This week is Teen Read Week @ Your Library!  VBPL is celebrating by bringing you some teen literature recommendations written by volunteers from the library's Teen Advisory Group.

False Memory by Dan Krokos is an exhilarating read from start to finish that engrosses the reader starting with the very first chapter. It is a pleasant balance of action, science fiction, psychology, and even a bit of romance. 

The novel starts off with a girl named Miranda who has forgotten her identity. While trying to recall who she is, she discovers that she has superior combat skills and the ability to strike intense fear in others by using only her mind. Once she meets a boy named Peter who understands her and her abilities, the story embarks on a train of excitement, wonder, and mystery that does not halt until the conclusion of the trilogy.

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green is a great book. It was written well and makes the reader attached to the main characters, allowing them to feel the emotion the character feels. Overall, the book grabs at your attention, making you want more with its plot twist and romance.

It's Kind of a Funny Story

It's Kindof a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini is an amazing read. The story is hilarious but heart-wrenching. The characters are so diverse, each one having their own unique personality and quirks. This book is a worthwhile read.
