New Genre Section

We are adding a new genre to the fiction section of the media center. Middle school literature and the middle school reader are rapidly changing. Books are always pushing the limits of what is considered acceptable, and while that can be a good thing, we still want to protect our "babies". The new section will be titled "Young Adult" and will feature books that are more suitable for older readers. These books will be available for all 8th graders. Other grades may check them out with a permission from a parent. Books in this section will include titles like The Fault in Our Stars, Panic, and If I Stay. All of these books are popular books. They all have a waiting list a mile long and many have been released as movies. There is value in these books, they are just not for everyone.
