Orange Shirt Day is coming up this week, Wednesday Sept 30. Remember to wear orange and come check out the new display in the library for tons of great First Peoples’ literature.
This Sci-Fi action packed novel is the first of a trilogy. It gives off serious Guardians of the Galaxy vibes and had the right amount of humor mixed with adventure and romance.
Check out what the authors have to say
And this great review!
The sequel for this book is also in the library, come check it out!
I have been ranting and raving about how much I LOVE this book since I read it in the spring. I am OBSESSED.
Cursed by a powerful enchantress to repeat the autumn of his eighteenth year, Prince Rhen, the heir of Emberfall, thought he could be saved easily if a girl fell for him. But that was before he turned into a vicious beast hell-bent on destruction. Before he destroyed his castle, his family, and every last shred of hope.
Nothing has ever been easy for Harper. With her father long gone, her mother dying, and her brother constantly underestimating her because of her cerebral palsy, Harper learned to be tough enough to survive. When she tries to save a stranger on the streets of Washington, DC, she’s pulled into a magical world.
Break the curse, save the kingdom.
Harper doesn’t know where she is or what to believe. A prince? A curse? A monster? As she spends time with Rhen in this enchanted land, she begins to understand what’s at stake. And as Rhen realizes Harper is not just another girl to charm, his hope comes flooding back. But powerful forces are standing against Emberfall . . . and it will take more than a broken curse to save Harper, Rhen, and his people from utter ruin. (Goodreads)
This book is the first of a trilogy and the second book is just as good! The 3rd won’t be out until January but not to worry as soon as it is available we will have copies.

The Library is going to look and function a little bit differently this year but the good news is that you will still be able to get books and exchange them as often as you like!
This is the new schedule for the library. You won’t be able to come in before or after school but you can ask your teacher if you are able to come and exchange your books during open book exchange times. You are also able to come in at lunch and use the library (no food or drinks).
English classes will also be bring their classes down to select silent reading novels. Inquiry and research projects will also happen as normal with teachers booking times to bring their students down.
