The Winner Is…


The winner of my “Which book should I review?” poll was Get Even by Gretchen McNeil. In this book, four girls attending an exclusive private school form a secret society called “Don’t Get Mad,” that takes revenge on the school’s bullies. Everything is going great until the latest target of their revenge ends up dead and all the clues point to “Don’t Get Mad.”

This is a great choice! If you’ve read some of my past book reviews, you know I love a good revenge book. I’ll post my review of the book next week.

Thanks for voting!

Read the book before you see the movie!

Last week I posted about Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, but that’s not the only summer movie based on a teen book! Check these out…

PaperTownsPoster Paper Towns
Based on: Paper Towns by John Green
Release date: July 24

One month before graduating from his Central Florida high school, Quentin “Q” Jacobsen basks in the predictable boringness of his life until the beautiful and exciting Margo Roth Spiegelman, Q’s neighbor and classmate, takes him on a midnight adventure and then mysteriously disappears. The movie stars Cara Delevingne and Nat Wolff.

 BigGamePoster Big Game
Based on: Big Game by Dan Smith
Release date: June 26

Every boy in Oskari’s remote mountain village must face a ritual hunt on his thirteenth birthday. The idea of spending a night alone in the forest makes him queasy, and the ceremonial bow he has to use is too big for him, but his true test comes when Air Force One is shot down near his campsite and he must help the President survive. Starring Samuel L. Jackson and Onni Tommila.

Summer Sneak Peek

UnmaskSloganThis summer, our theme is “Unmask!” and it’s all about heroes. You can come to some great superhero programs like movies, art, spray painting t-shirts with superhero logos, and even learning basic self defense so you can be your own hero. Not into heroes? There’s plenty more to do, like build a paper roller coaster, make Washi tape art, or build a foam dart blaster. Be on the look out for more info as we get closer to summer!

Me & Earl

Hey, did you know that the movie Me and Earl and the Dying Girl is coming out this summer? Check out the trailer below! I would definitely recommend reading the book before you see the movie. I read it and thought it was funny, crazy, and brutally honest. You can read my review of the book here.
