It's almost summer!

Now that you've just about finished another school year, it's time to look at reading some great books just for you, not that assignment!  YALSA (Young Adult Library Services Association) has compiled a list for the 2013 Teens' Top Ten Nominations. http://www.ala.org/yalsa/teens-top-ten  Plus, some members of Readers Anonymous (PTHS book club) gave a few suggestions.  William recommends The Lost Gate and The Gate Thief by Orson Scott Card.  He also liked Every Other Day by Jennifer Barnes.  Nathan has been sucked into Game of Thrones and is waiting for more copies to be processed so he can continue the series.  Savan stopped by and is rereading Anne McCaffrey because she likes the worlds the author creates.She's also been reading books by Ellen Hopkins (sometimes painful to read, but really compelling). Hunter hasn't read anything except class assignments (she's taking 2 Math classes this year!!), but enjoyed reading Much Ado About Nothing.  Ms. Stolaas recommends Mountains Beyond Mountains by Tracy Kidder and Michael French.
