Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams

One Thursday the Earth gets unexpectedly demolished to make way for a new hyperspace bypass. For Arthur Dent, who has only just had his house demolished that morning, this seems already to be more than he can cope with. Sadly, however, the weekend has only just begun, and the Galaxy is a very very very large and startling place.

We meet at Sunset Foods on the 2nd floor and your first drink is on us. The first 7 registered teens to check in at the Youth Services desk get a free copy of the book.

Heads Up: This book has a suggested reading audience of 7-12th grade.
