Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz

2020-05-05T15:27:21+00:00

This lyrical novel is one of the best books I have ever read. Aristotle is an angry teen with a brother in prison. Dante is a know-it-all who has an unusual way of looking at the world. When the two meet at the swimming pool, they seem to have nothing in common. But as the loners start spending time together, they [...]

I, Claudia by Mary McCoy

2020-04-14T15:26:39+00:00

  I, Claudia was scheduled to be the March book for Pizza and Pages, our teen book group, and man, was I excited to talk about it.  Winner of a 2019 Printz Honor, this book is almost the total package.  However, I want to first point out that this is a book where you really can’t judge it by its cover.  [...]

We Were Beautiful

2019-06-25T16:16:32+00:00

I should have known that "We Were Beautiful" was going to be a tear-jerker. Author Heather Hepler (Jars of Glass, Scrambled Eggs at Midnight) is a master of the art and this one did not disappoint. It's been almost a year since Mia was in the car accident that killed her sister, Rachel. Mia has been left badly scarred and [...]

Apocalypse Taco

2019-06-18T15:01:46+00:00

I have always loved Summer Reading Programs. I used to ride my bike to my local library branch and check out so many that it was almost impossible to balance the load on the way home. So, this year, as well as doing the Adult SRP at SDL, I am also going to do the Teen SRP Book Genre Bingo. [...]
