Teen Read Week is this week and the theme is Books with Beat. This could mean books with a music theme, audiobooks or poems, anything that will get you interested in picking up a book at your next visit to the library!
Somebody Everybody Listens To by Suzanne Supplee offers readers a look into a young girl trying to follow her dream to Nashville. The author also offers a profile before each chapter of well-known country singers.
Another music-themed book is A Little Wanting Song by Cath Crowley. The story is told from two different viewpoints, giving the book a unique flow. Charlie is a shy girl who spends her summers at her grandfather’s, where she is constantly snubbed by the girl-next-door, Rose.
Three Rivers Rising: A Novel of the Johnstown Flood by Jame Richards is written in verse. Although the book follows the stories of four fictional families, it offers a unique view of the time before and during the 1889 Johnstown flood in Pennsylvania.
