November Recommendations for Teens


The Silver Blade by Sally Gardner - Yann, the Silver Blade, works within the French revolution with his magic, and straining to protect his true love, in this exciting conclusion to The Red Necklace. Set in the tumultuous world of Paris in 1794, where the guillotine sings through the air, and the mob is a force to fear. Count Kalliovski, lurks menacingly in the catacombs with his fearsome black dog. Threading through the story is the love of Sido and Yann against the intense revolutionary backdrop and overwhelming obstacles.

And Another Thing by Eoin Colfer - Arthur Dent has finally made it home to earth, which might be blown up again, and seems to have failed to grasp the meaning of life, the universe, and everything. Wonder what Ford Prefect, Zaphod Beeblebrox, Trillian, and the Vogons are conconcting? This is the continuation of the late Douglas Adam’s irrepressible Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld - It’s the start of World War I, but in a very different world. One world has the Clankers, advanced machines with giant spider-like walkers. The other world contains the Darwinists, creating war weapons with genetic engineering. In the middle of this impending war are two troubled youngsters. Young Aleksandar, the only son of Duke Ferdinand, flees after his father is assassinated, and strives to avoid those who attempt to kill him. Also there is young Dalyn who finally achieves her dream whole to be a British Navy Airman but since girls are not allowed to serve, she must keep her identity secret. This imaginative and amazing tale of monstrous floating whale ships, and menacing spider-like Clanker ships will capture your imagination. Bizarre technology, mutant animals, and a world war in the works! Be sure to pick up this fantastic book!


A Big Little Life by Dean Koontz - “Dogs live most of life in Quiet Heart, humans live mostly next door in Desperate Heart. Now and then will do you good to live in our zip code” Trixie Koontz

Dean and Gerda Koontz adopt Trixie, a beautiful 3 year-old former service dog with Canine Companions for Independence, who teaches Dean about the joy of life by living in the present. Koontz claims his irrepressible golden retriever can think, see spirits, loves nachos, and even speak. A delightful romp from the life of a joyous dog.
