Greenwich Library's summer reading program for teens "Make Waves @ Your Library" drew 10 participants who read a total of 57 books. The Pretty Little Liars series by Sara Shepard and anything by Rick Riordan were very popular choices. The Young Bond series by Charles Higson gets good recommendations from one of the male participants in the program who says the books are great adventures and "full of action." One participant, who read about 25 books herself, liked the books where kids had to fend for themselves and solve their own problems like Crunch by Leslie Connor or Benjamin Pratt and the Keepers of the School by Andrew Clements which she describes as "inspiring."
Participants read books and wrote small reviews. Each week a review card was randomly selected for a prize. If the student read 5 books or 1000 pages they filled out a postcard with the titles. Each postcard earned the student a prize and the grand prize winner was selected from these completed postcards.
The weekly winners were: Angela Ri, Emma Esterman, Victoria Slater (a two-time winner), Kristina Jacobson and Claire Esterman The grand prize went to Emma Esterman, the young lady who read 20+ books. Thanks to everyone for participating!
