Book Nook Wish List 

Our current greatest need for books is for popular teen fiction. The list below includes books that are often chosen from our collection or that have been specifically requested by teens in shelter with us:  

Ask a bookseller to guide you to the current teen best sellers, or pick up one of these guaranteed pleasers:                                                         

  • Michael Vey series, Richard Paul Evans, especially 5, 6, 7
