Simply choose a book, read it and come tell other teens what you thought about it. You are free to choose your own book/eBook/audiobook or you can select one from our suggestions list by clicking on the provided link. Not interested in sharing what you’ve read, no problem, you can join us to simply get recommendations. You will need to register for each week you wish to participate in separately.
