As part of her library internship Katie Sonnek has created a book review blog, The Reading Lamp, in which she describes and critiques literature for the young adult audience. This month you can find reviews of critically acclaimed fantasy writer Susan Cooper’s Over Sea Under Stone, Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine, Boston Jane by Jennifer L. Holm, The Lions of Little Rock by Kristine Levine, and several others.  Each month Sonnek will be busy reading and reviewing some of the best fiction written for teens, including the books that have received American Library awards this year.  Watch for a Katie’s display of the 2013 teen award winners in the lower level of the library coming soon. Check our her critiques for advice on good books to read for yourselves, your students (if you are an education major), or your children (if you are a book loving parent).
