Teen Paperback Series

Hey Guys
I am thinking about changing some of the teen paperback series at the Paseo Verde Library. Let’s start with the TV Tie-ins. Are any of you still reading any of these?

7th Heaven
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Flight 29 Down
Star Trek-Enterprise

Would you like us to get tie-in books about any other TV shows? If so, leave a comment and let me know.


Fruit Bowl Project by Sarah Durbee

An 8th grade teacher brings in a cool rock star to help teach her writing class. The resulting efforts of students, who write about the same topic, are in the style of a poem, monologue, fairytale, a rap and more.

If you're interested in writing, this is a great book to give you some ideas on different types of writing. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.



My favorite mysteries that aren’t Mysteries.

I don’t normally read Mystery novels, but some of my favorite books are mysteries that don’t quite fit the stereotype.

So Yesterday by Scott Westerfeld
Hunter is a cool hunter, he gets paid to find the newest trendsetters. He's got it made, until he makes his greatest find yet and his whole life gets turned upside down.

Stuck in Neutral by Terry Truman
Shawn is a "serious genius" who can't move a muscle, not even his eyes. He's satisfied with his life, until he discovers that his father is thinking of killing him to end his "suffering"

The Unlikely Exploits Trilogy by Philip Ardagh
"The very last words young Fergal McNally heard in his life were: 'Don't lean out of that window!'" The McNally children travel to the big city for a typing competition when the unthinkable happens, and that's just the beginning.

Pick one up at your Henderson Library, you might like it, You Never Know...

What’s your favorite non-mystery mystery?
