Alright, here it is - our first online teen CONTEST with prizes! The Forbidden Challenge!
As part of Banned Books Week (September 30 - October 6), I've made a survey of the 109 most challenged/banned book of the past 12 years. Follow this link and check the box of every banned book you've read. Honor system - ya'll.
What was the best teen book you read in the last year (or so)?
As part of Teen Read Week (Oct. 14-20), we're compiling a list of our favorite YA books from 2012 - or thereabouts. We're not going to give your choice the ax because it was published in 2011. Now, if your book came out in 2005...it's gonna see the chopping block.
Teen Advisory Board registration is open! (Grades 6-12th)
Look what's coming out on Sept. 21st!
And, just in time, too! Did you see what we're reading for the September's Mocha and More Book Discussion? It's:
The Perks of Being a Wallflower.
How about The Fault In Our Stars? Or Legend? Maybe Where She Went? Don't forget about Divergent!
Do you have a favorite book (or 3) from the past year? Do you think it deserves to be on the Teen's Top Ten list? Well then, head over to the YALSA Teens' Top Ten page and vote for your top 3 books!
Did you notice that the Northbrook Public Library Teens have their own Facebook page?
