Teen Books Becoming Movies in 2017

November 2, 2016 - 1:25pm -- Jill

Every year a teen book is turned into a movie. This year has seen a lot of great young adult books made into movies, including The 5th Wave and Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. 2017 will be no exception to the rule. Many great novels are set to be released as movies but there is still time to read!

Life After High School and Beyond

October 28, 2016 - 1:25pm -- Desiree

Wondering where to go to college and what to study? To take a gap year? Financial aid? To take the ACT or SAT or both? Jobs?

Batman Has His Own Day?!

Did you know this? I only found this out a year ago. I think it’s a great idea to celebrate the Dark Knight. Why? Because he tends to be children’s and adults’ favorite superhero. Heck, some people end up loving Batman’s archrivals more than other superheros, like the Joker, Harley Quinn, and the Riddler to name a few. When Batman vs. Superman came out in movie theaters, I knew more people who wanted Batman to win over Superman. And did he?
