Get Interactive: Share a Favorite, Check Out a Favorite!

Looking for a great book to read this summer? Westover's teens have some suggestions for you. Check out their post-it display and add your own suggestions to it!

Some comments from teens: 
"Like her parents, Cammie goes to a girls only spy school to train to be a spy."
Why? This book is full of puzzles. It is about a boy and a girl who solve a mystery about a missing painting. It’s full of fun codes, puzzles, and games.

Holes by Louis Sachar (see a video review here)
"It’s the best book ever!”
