Thanks to all of you who have participated in our Reading Game this week. Our Week One Winner is Erica Noreika, who will cool off with her prize of a Dunkin' Donuts gift card. Erica is doing lots of reading this summer -- she recommends Crazy Hot by Melissa de la Cruz (three teens end up spending the summer in the Hamptons as au pairs), The Nanny Diaries by Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus (Nanny tries to maintain the mental health of a four-year-old as well as herself), Wicked by Sara Shepard (Ali's killer is finally in jail, or is he?), and 3 Willows by Ann Brashares (the friendship of Polly, Jo and Ama). She probably would not recommend I Love You, Beth Cooper by Larry Doyle (Dennis Cooverman announces in his graduation speech that he loves Beth Cooper -- he won't do that again -- he's almost killed by Beth's angry boyfriend and finds out one of his friends isn't really gay.)
Our other reading game entrants this week included Jamie Spock who recommends Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson: "about Melinda's journey to find her voice and the courage to speak out against what happened to her." Jazz Munitz read A Crooked Kind of Perfect by Linda Urban -- in which Zoey realizes that "sometimes the best thing isn't what she wanted in the beginning."
Tonight is our Teen Jewelry Beading class and Thursday is our showing of Inkheart (PG-13) -- hope to see you there!
