Teen Title Talk: Attack of the 50 Foot Wallflower and Phantom Wheel

This week, Erin and guest host Adi Rule dive into two sci-fi titles: Attack of the 50 Foot Wallflower by Christian McKay Heidicker and Phantom Wheel: A Hackers Novel by Tracy Deebs. They talk character building, plot pacing and plausibility. Of course, they also reconnect with their teen selves by answering the questions: What was the best vacation you went on as a teen? Who was your teen crush and what was your most awkward moment? You can email to share your own stories, ask for a reading recommendation or find out more about library life.

Teen Title Talk: Sadie and The Astonishing Color of After

This week, Courtney and Erin dig into two Printz contenders, Sadie by Courtney Summers and The Astonishing Color of After by Emily X.R. Pan.

They also dig into their teen lives with the questions “did you pull any pranks?” “What was your ‘fashion’ like?” and “Who was your favorite teacher and why?” Feel free to join the conversation by answering these same questions, ask us about library life or request a book recommendation at
