[What is this all about? Well, we love the idea of YALSA’s Teen Read Week and we love the theme – Read Beyond Reality @ your library, but we think that one week of celebrating the joy of reading for teens is just not enough. We blow it up into a month long celebration. So, crack open your books and study up on the contenders. There are plenty of books with wizards and vampires, and you may have to search high and low for ninjas – beyond Naruto, but there are a lot of fantastic stories to be had for teens. And, to help you out, we have booklists.]
