Welcome to Teen Reads!
For eight weeks this summer, every Monday, the Teen blog will feature a book review and reading recommendations within a given theme.
Each review will be a recommended read from an OPL Teen Advisory Group member.
Here is this week’s review and recommendations.
Optimists Die First by Susin Nielsen
After the death of her little sister, Petula, due to her guilt, develops a fear of germs. She now participates in an after-school group in an effort to get her through this tragedy. I love this book! It’s very realistic, sad, and touching. It kept my attention and made me think. Petula’s life made me see people like her from a new perspective. I was so disappointed to finish this book.
