New teen books

Here is a list of teen books I’ve read over the last few month . I’ve  only  listed  the ones I  really  enjoyed.   I can’t promise how often I will do this, but I will be putting longer reviews on our teen blog.

Hacking  Timbuktu by  Stephen  Davis.  Treasure  hunting ,  hacking  and parkour – what  more  could  you want?

Old Photographs by Sherie Posesorski. Phoebe’s life has changed a lot , new stepdad, new baby sister, new school and a long boring summer ahead. But when she meets an elderly lady and tries to figure out why her house was broken into , her life becomes more interesting.

Hold Me Closer, Necromancer by Lish McBride. Sam is a college dropout and is working in a fast food place. He feels a bit lost and like he really isn’t sure who he is. Then he finds out. He is a necromancer. Not only that, the head necromancer in town wants him dead. This is a horror book, but it is one of the funniest books I’ve read in a long time. ( It references Mansquito , one of the worst Syfy movies ever. and one of my favorites. )

Gool  and  Salt  by Maurice Gee. I’ve actually just read Salt, Gool is on my to-be-read pile. Post apocalyptic fiction The corporation has taken over, and society is very stratified. Secrets are threatening to destroy the world. Try this series if you liked The Hunger Games.
