Teens Only

The Teen Zone is your space.  Read, play a board game, use the computers, have a study group, or just chill.  It’s okay.  That’s why we built this place.  We only ask that you follow a few simple rules: Be nice to each other (and to us—thanks!), if you make a mess clean it up, indoor voices, have fun, and...

Next Big Teen Book Release

Awaken

by Meg Cabot

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Meg Cabot, the dark re-imagining of the Persephone myth comes to a thrilling conclusion.

Death has her in his clutches. Pierce doesn't want him to let go.

Seventeen-year-old Pierce Oliviera knew by accepting the love of John Hayden, she'd be forced to live forever in the one place she's always dreaded most: the Underworld. The sacrifice seemed worth it, though, because it meant she could be with the boy she loves.

But now her happiness -- and safety -- are threatened, all because the Furies have discovered that John has broken one of their strictest rules: He revived a human soul.

If the balance between life and death isn't fixed, both the Underworld and Pierce's home back on earth will be wiped away. But there's only one way to restore order. Someone has to die.

The myth of Persephone...darkly re-imagined.
