Changeling, Order of Darkness series, by Philippa Gregory
Teen Reviewer: Zeke Pedrino
I think that Changeling: The Order of Darkness Book One is a fantastic book. I think this book is fantastic because it is fast paced and has action, which I am fond of. It also has a lot of religious based ways, most are catholic, which is surprising and allows me to learn about other religions.
Win a tablet!
The Summer Reading Program is back and this year we are again giving away a tablet computer at your local branch! Come into the library for all of our awesome events this summer and while you're there register for the Summer Reading Program.
Every book review that you fill out (And they can be short!) wins you a library buck, an entry to win the tablet, and the admiration of your Teen Services Librarian.

Alice in the Country of Hearts is a manga series based on the Japanese game Alice in the Country of Hearts Wonderful Wonder World, which in itself is a re-imagining of Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland.
