Teen Read Week is Oct. 17-23, 2010.
This year’s theme, "Books With Beat @ your library®", encourages teens to read poetry, audiobooks, and books about music, not for school but just for the fun of it. Here’s a list of some "Books With Beat" available at the Stow-Munroe Falls Public Library:
Sixteen-year-old Audrey gains unwanted fame and celebrity status when her ex-boyfriend, a rock musician, records a breakup song about her that soars to the top of the Billboard charts.
Scott Pilgrim (graphic novel)
Scott Pilgrim plays guitar in a rock band and has just started going out with a girl named Knives. All goes well until the beautiful Ramona enters his life, complete with roller skates, blue hair, and a wicked sense of humor. Can Scott choose between the sweet Knives and the desirable Ramona, especially when Ramona says that he should combat her seven evil ex-boyfriends?
She’s Got the Beat
