    We had a lot going on this past Tuesday. With our new cookware, we made strawberry filled crepes drizzled with chocolate. Pictured here are seniors from Reagan HS trying their hand at cooking the crepes.

Book Reviews

  • Parman Teen Book Review: “Highly illogical behavior” by John Corey Whaley
    Posted on 1/9/2017 12:19 PM by parmanlibraryteens

    Unlike anything I’ve ever read, this book only took me a couple hours to finish reading it because I couldn’t put it down. In Highly Illogical Behavior, Whaley examines mental illness with humor while managing to ensure his deep, true message reverberates with readers. The protagonist of the novel, Solomon Reed, is an agoraphobic. Instead […]

    Posted on 12/27/2016 01:14 PM by parmanlibraryteens

    “A Torch Against the Night”will almost certainly take you on a roller coaster ride of emotions and have you biting your nails from anticipation from start to finish. There were many, many things I enjoyed about this book, my favorite being Helene’s point of view. Although I did like Helene in An Ember in the […]

  • Parman Teen Book Review: “Six of Crows” by Leigh Bardugo
    Posted on 12/20/2016 12:48 PM by parmanlibraryteens

    This novel is different from anything I’ve ever read. Although it does have some characteristics typical of all fantasy novels to it, such as superpowers and a prejudiced society, Six of Crows shines with main characters who are all outcasts. Kaz Brekker is the ultimate antihero, and the rest of his crew – Jesper, Inej, […]

  • Parman Teen Book Review:”P.S. I like you” by Kasie West
    Posted on 11/22/2016 01:03 PM by parmanlibraryteens

           P.S. I Like You was my first Kasie West read, and I picked it up after reading many raving reviews and receiving countless recommendations. I was not disappointed; however, I did not enjoy it as much as I had hoped. This novel was highly entertaining, swoon-worthy, and absolutely adorable, yet unmemorable. Having finished this […]
