Ten Thousand Skies Above You by Claudia Gray My rating: 5 of 5 stars Thumbnail credit: Imagination Bubble. MY EXPERIENCE WITH THE BOOK: I enjoyed every second of this book, just like I did with book one. With both books, I procrastinate reading them. I'm not sure why: they are everything I ask for [...]
Moral Disorder by Margaret Atwood My rating: 3 of 5 stars MY EXPERIENCE WITH THE BOOK: I listened to this entirely through 1 day's commute (2x speed). The first short story is a blur, so forgive me. The later women were more memorable and meaningful to me. CHARACTERS/DYNAMICS: I can't remember a single name, but [...]
Bridge of Clay by Markus Zusak My rating: 4 of 5 stars MY EXPERIENCE WITH THE BOOK: I read this via Bolinda Audiobooks. I thoroughly enjoyed Zusack narrating it! His voice was lovely and so Occa.

I started holding special study sessions for teens at my library after noticing how many high school students were leaving the library to go elsewhere because there was no room for them.
