Do you like reading realistic fiction about teens?  John Green is an author to check out, with his special mix of clever humor and honesty about real issues we all face.   His latest book, The Fault In Our Stars, isn't due out until January, but you can go ahead and sign up for the waiting list. 

While you're waiting, check out his other books: Looking for Alaska, Paper Towns (my favorite!), An Abundance of Katherines, or Will Grayson, Will Grayson

Hey Teens, what do you want at the BX Library?

 

Games, Origami, something else?  Got some ideas for Teen activities you would like to see at the Bixby Library?  Let me know and let's see what we can get going.

SORTA LIKE THE FAIRY TALE…BUT NOT

 

Modernized Fairy Tales seem to be everywhere these days: on TV, at the movies (2 Snow Whites!) and in books. I really liked these two and think the writer has a chance to help us all live happily ever after if she will just keep on writing!
