The Teen Zone is your space to read, use the computers, study, 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, use indoor voices, and bring your friends with you next time you visit!

Next Big Teen Book Release

The Red Scrolls of Magic

by Cassandra Clare and Wesley Chu

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      

 

 

All Magnus Bane wanted was a vacation—a lavish trip across Europe with Alec Lightwood, the Shadowhunter who against all odds is finally his boyfriend. But as soon as the pair settles in Paris, an old friend arrives with news about a demon-worshipping cult called the Crimson Hand that is bent on causing chaos around the world. A cult that was apparently founded by Magnus himself. Years ago. As a joke.

Now Magnus and Alec must race across Europe to track down the Crimson Hand and its elusive new leader before the cult can cause any more damage. As if it wasn’t bad enough that their romantic getaway has been sidetracked, demons are now dogging their every step, and it is becoming harder to tell friend from foe. As their quest for answers becomes increasingly dire, Magnus and Alec will have to trust each other more than ever—even if it means revealing the secrets they’ve both been keeping.

 

Release Date: April 9, 2019

Teens Talk About Books

Because we know you get tired of reading so much blah, blah about how good certain books are, we thought we'd let some teens TELL you how good they are.  Click on the books below to hear what your peers have to say. (The link will take you to the library's YouTube Channel.)
