*NEW to the website *Great Teen Reads From a Teen Perspective*   6-23-2016

Fiction-Adam of the Road by Elizabeth J Gray–The author takes music, the era of Lords and Ladies, a hint of romance, and mixes them together into a story anyone could read, and almost always love. A young boy who grows up a minstrel has to face getting robbed, losing track of his father, and losing his best friend. As you watch the boy go down the road to finding his father, you will fall in love with him and most of the people he meets. A wonderful book with an interesting plot that keeps twisting and turning down the road.

Historical Fiction-I am David by Anne Holm–War isn’t pretty, but if you grew up in a concentration camp, that is all you know. When you read this book, you follow a young boy who has escaped, and is trying to find out where he belongs. It sounds easy enough, but when you know next to nothing about the outside world, people will start to think you queer. As I read this story, I was pulled to turn the next page, and I just couldn’t put it down. It gives you a look at what happens to ex-prisoners after the war.

Fiction-Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton–A wonderful mix of sand, Arabia, magic, romance, guns and danger.  In this story the author leads you on a journey following a young heroine, who wants nothing but to leave her desert town.   The heroine’s many encounters with new people lead her down a path towards finding out her true identity.  I found when I had finished the book, I missed the character’s and the landscape more than when I was reading it.  The author hints at a sequel and I can’t wait.

The popular Community Connections program was organized in 2014 as a joint project between the Story Branch Library and the Story Elementary School.  The program does a great job of establishing and maintaining connections between our long-time residents, sharing first-hand knowledge of the community’s history, and our newer residents, the Story Elementary School children, sharing their youthful exuberance and hopes for the future.
