The teen reviewers from the Young Adult Advisory Councils (YAAC) did a lot of reading during the holiday break, and the reward is all ours. Some of the books they took a look at include the latest from Chris Lynch, noteworthy nonfiction, contemporary mysteries, a bit of magic realism, and a touch of sci-fi.
This sequel to Lynch’s Iceman (1994) is a sophisticated look at a teen’s maturation through a series of dynamic life changes.
