Summer Reading Club is over!

Teen SRC

 

Summer Reading Club ended on July 30, and all of you together read an impressive 3,891 hours! I know the question on everyone’s mind is, “When will we know who won the raffle???????” The answer is…. maybe Friday, probably next week. Everyone has until the library closes on Thursday to fill out any raffle tickets they haven’t redeemed yet, and then we’ll do the drawing. I’ll notify the winners, and post here when that’s done (so if you don’t hear from me, sorry! Try again next year!)

You may also be wondering who was voted the ultimate superhero! Find out after the jump! Continue reading

Even though it’s never checked in, and you’ll pretty much have to place a request to get it, I have to start with Brandon Sanderson’s Steelheart and its sequel Firefight. What happens when the people who get superpowers all turn evil and take over the world? Is there any possible way for a normal kid to save his city and avenge his father’s death at the hands of Steelheart, the Epic ruling what used to be Chicago? David has been doing his research, and he knows if he has any hope of taking down Steelheart, he has to join the Reckoners, a vigilante group who have been successful in taking down lesser Epics. The problem is, every Epic has only one weakness, and it’s usually hard to figure out, but David has an important clue: he’s seen Steelheart bleed.
