Weekly Teen Series

Teen Series on Display for the Week of December 20th

Avatars by Tui Sutherland

Amazon Product Description for the first book in the series: "Something was different. She stepped hesitantly out of the subway car, her boots sounding even louder now. What was it?

The graffiti. Had that been there before?

Emblazoned across the far wall in huge silver letters:

The end has come.

In New York, Kali wakes to an empty subway car, and an even emptier city. Venus and Gus survive an earthquake in Los Angeles and realize they have to deal with more than just the aftershocks. In Chile, Tigre finds himself in an unfamiliar jungle, and strangely not alone. And Amon, in Egypt, can see his path but is blind to the full picture.

They are suddenly trapped in a deserted world, five teenagers with no hope of escape. Why have they survived? What force—or intelligence—connects them? Drawn inexorably toward one another, they only know their future involves an experience outside anything they could have imagined. Fantasy newcomer Tui T. Sutherland creates a future in which teens have the power to complete the destruction of Earth—or to save it."

The Vampire Diaries by L. J. Smith

Think because you watch the show you know what happens in the books...think again. This is one tv series that strays far, and I mean to the ends of the earth kind of far, from the books.
