The Clique

If you’ve always wondered what Claire, Massie, Alicia, Dylan, and Kristen look like, talk like, and act like, you don’t have to wonder anymore. 

The first book in the series by Lisi Harrison has just been made into a direct to DVD movie.  Don’t be the last Clique fan to see it – we’ve got it at the library!  If you can’t remember the first book anymore, don’t worry, we’ve got the whole Clique series and summer series, too.

Naruto Nation

Good news, Naruto fans!  Viz has announced that Naruto anime and manga will now be released in the U.S.  much closer to their Japanese release dates. 

“Anime episodes will begin streaming in the U.S. on the Website within days of broadcast in Japan; manga releases will appear in the U.S. within months of the Japanese volume’s release.” []

In order to catch up, there will be 11, yes eleven, new volumes of the Naruto manga released between February and April 2009.  After that, they’ll be released roughly once every 3 months.

We’ve got the most recently released volume, number 32, on the shelf now.
