Reality BitesTeen Realistic Fiction: Heidi Kling, Nina LaCour, and Jandy Nelson
Thursday June 10, 7:00 p.m.Join us to meet three of our favorite new writers of teen realistic fiction
:

Heidi R. Kling: Sea BUY NOW
Still haunted by nightmares of her mother's death, Sienna Jones reluctantly travels to Indonesia with her father's relief team to help tsunami orphans with their post-traumatic stress disorder. The last thing she expects is to fall for Deni, a brooding Indonesian boy who lives at the orphanage. When Deni hears a rumor that his father may be alive, Sienna doesn't think twice about running away with him to the epicenter of the disaster. Unfortunately, what they find there could break both their hearts.

Nina LaCour: Hold Still BUY NOW
Ingrid left a painful farewell in her journal for Caitlin. Now Caitlin is left alone, struggling to find hope in the wake of her best friend's suicide. With the help of family and friends, Caitlin will encounter first love, broaden her horizons, and realize that true friendship didn't die with Ingrid.

Jandy Nelson: The Sky Is Everywhere BUY NOW
Lennie Walker plays second clarinet and lives in her sister, Bailey's, shadow. But when Bailey dies abruptly, Lennie is catapulted to center stage and finds herself struggling to balance two boys: Toby , Bailey's boyfriend; whose grief mirrors her own and Joe, a transplant from Paris whose grin is matched by his musical talent. For Lennie, one boy takes her out of her sorrow, the other comforts her in it. But they can't collide without the world exploding.
I hope to see ya there!!!

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
