Teen Summer Reading 2015: Unmask
Read! Rate! Win! Join us for summer reading and win some prizes. Here's how:
Read: Books, graphic novels, comic books, audio books, eBooks - read whatever YOU want to read this summer. "Unmask" a new favorite!
Rate: Fill out a review form (online or on paper at the library). Rate what you have read, then write a short review (just two sentences - or more if you're inspired!) Did you love it? Hate it? Why?
Win: For each review written you will be entered into our grand prize drawing. The more you read and rate the more chances you have of winning. The grand prize will be a gift certificate AND you will be invited to our August 10th Pizza Party!

2015 Printz Honor Books
And the 2015 Printz Award Goes To...
I'll Give You the Sun
by Jandy Nelsen
Jude and her twin brother, Noah, are incredibly close. At thirteen, isolated Noah draws constantly and is falling in love with the charismatic boy next door, while daredevil Jude cliff-dives and wears red-red lipstick and does the talking for both of them. But three years later, Jude and Noah are barely speaking. Something has happened to wreck the twins in different and dramatic ways... until Jude meets a cocky, broken, beautiful boy, as well as someone else-an even more unpredictable new force in her life. The early years are Noah's story to tell. The later years are Jude's. What the twins don't realize is that they each have only half the story, and if they could just find their way back to one another, they'd have a chance to remake their world.
