Kern County Library Staff Suggests...: September Recommendations for Teens

September Recommendations for Teens


I Was a Teenage Alien by Jane Greenhill - Oas, a typical female teenage alien from the planet Zorca twenty-three, is sent to Earth disguised as a teenager to rescue her younger brother, Ralb. She travels with Lehcarr, a hungry Venus fly trap and Rotsen, a sarcastic talking flower. After landing in Bedrock, she is mystified by teens, enchanted by pizza, and determined to save the town from an E. coli outbreak. She discovers the wonder of human boyfriends, realizes siblings are annoying on any planet, and parents (or Parental Beings) are always parents!

Hearts at Stake by Alyxandra Harvey - Solange is nearly sixteen, and has always known she will then become a vampire. Lucy, her human best friend, along with Solange’s seven older brothers and parents, attempt to save her from the royal court and various infighting vampire clans. A dual romance develops amidst the fighting, furor, and family love.

Fever Crumb by Philip Reeve - Set in post-apocalyptic London, orphan Fever Crumb is being raised by the Order of Engineers. She has been taught to repress her emotions and to pursue science, and being flooded with memories not of her making defies logic. Suspected of being a Scriven, she must evade the Skinners, and the excavation of a long held secret increases the tension as she struggles to survive, and discover who she truly is.

Premiere by Melody Carlson - Two sisters, as different as night and day, are given the marvelous opportunity to star in their own fashion television show. Do reality television shows manipulate their ‘actors’? Can these teens stay true to themselves?
