Friday, October 1, 2010

October Recommendations for Teens


The Gardener by S.A. Bodeen - A greenhouse which grows humans? Military officers would have a great advantage if they could field an army which could survive on sunlight. Mason’s chance encounter with beautiful, semi-catatonic Laila leads him on a breathtaking journey to save her, meet his father, and discover the real nature of the mysterious TroDyn lab and what his mother has been shielding him from.

Witch and Wizard by James Patterson and Gabrielle Charbonnet - Wisty and Whit Allgood are brutally torn from their family in the middle of the night and accused of being a witch and wizard. Slapped into a dank prison by the New Order, and tortured, they strive to master their newly discovered powers. Escaping the prison, they join the resistance. This fast paced tale has them fighting The One who is The One, with Wisty periodically bursting into flame.

The Cardturner by Louis Sachar - It is the summer after Alton’s junior year of high school and his girlfriend is now dating his best friend. He has no money, and no job, and now his parents insist he drive his old, sick, rich, and blind uncle to bridge club four times per week. Alton’s parents carp and scheme about Uncle Lester’s will, but Alton finds himself intrigued by bridge and shy Toni Casteneda, who seems crazy. What did happen to Uncle Lester’s perfect bridge partner, Annabelle who was committed to a mental institution?
