This book is for adults in the business world. However, I think some of the concepts could apply to teens. I'm debating whether to order it for my high school library. We do have business and classes related to business. The audio book is also good.
I already have this series in my high school library. I read the first one years ago and was always waiting to get to the next books in the series as it is popular. The public library had the audio version so I listened to it on my cell phone. I can see why it's popular with teens. It's fine for any high school library. Enjoy!
I really liked this book. It's not for everyone but it should be in all high school libraries. I have had transgender students in the past and this is a book I think they would enjoy. It's about being brave to who you are. Plus it's just a good story. Enjoy.

I am a fan of Ally Carter for YA books in the library. You can count on adventures, strong female characters and danger. The audio book also very good. I'm planning on getting this for my high school library. Enjoy.
I really enjoy reading Marion Chesney also known as M. C. Beaton. An Edwardian murder mystery. Enjoy. Think Heart to Heart of a different time.
This is a great book and perfect for middle school and elementary libraries. It's a good read and I look forward to reading the next book. It's an enjoyable and sweet book. Add this to your reading list. Audio book also very good.

I had taken a group of students and teachers to hear Michael Pollan speak at Fresno's Town Hall. He is an excellent speaker. So naturally I wanted to read/listen to his books. The audio book is read by him. A good choice. I always wonder about food and even though this was published in 2006, there still is some important information you will want to read about. You'll thank me later. Will get for my high school reference. Read and learn.

I had read book one last winter and had just seen Hamilton in Chicago this summer. As I was reading the story, I kept having the sound track of the play in my head. It's a great story, some author liberties but basically historically true. The audio book also good. Enjoy!
Oh this is one intense book. The audio book also good. FYI a few f-bombs. I liked this story a lot. Each character is well developed and there are some pretty bad people in the story. You want to root for the good guys in this story. Will get for my high school library. Enjoy.
This is a great series for middle school students. Enjoy it's funny and smart and there's even a secret alien in the story. There's even a danger with a lack of oxygen. It's a great story. The audio book is also funny. Enjoy.
This is one intense book. It's a thriller that goes beyond Nightmare on Elm Street. I am a fan of Amy Plum, she can write some great teen stories. I'm adding this to my library collection. I am looking forward to the next book. Also, the audio book is done well. Enjoy.
You will need a tissue for this story. So worth reading. It stays with you long after you turn the last page. Audiobook also good.

I did like this story. I am a fanasty fan. There's a lot of fantasy out there and sometimes they can blend together. I think this is a good series and good for personal libraries to collect as well as public libraries.

This is a must read for all. Even the person who is in the presidential office should read this book. Or at least listen to the audio book. It's humanity and understanding what people went through and the universal challenges that are faced. Watch Francine grow up into a young woman. It's a good story.
