Monday, November 1, 2010

November Recommendations for Teens


Hunger by Jackie Morse Kessler - Lisabeth Lewis, an anorexic seventeen-year-old girl, has a new job: she’s been appointed Famine. How will she face the world as one of the four housemen of the apocalypse? She rides a black steed with a set of scales, viewing first hand the ravages Famine has on the world, while battling her own demons of self-image and self-control.

Wicked Girls: A Novel of the Salem Witch Trials by Stephanie Hemphill - It was just a girls’ game till it turned deadly. This is a fictionalized account of the Salem witch trials told in verse from the point of view of three young women living in 1692 Salem. Ann, Mercy, and Margaret unleash a torrent of accusations which forever alter the lives of the people in their village.


The Other Wes Moore: One Name, Two Fates by Wes Moore - Two boys. Same name. Same city. Born within a year of each other. One is in prison serving a life sentence with parole, the other a combat veteran of Afghanistan and a Rhodes Scholar. In moments of decision, their choices have led them down widely divergent paths. How can young men find their way in this hostile world?
