Hi Teenreaders,

Whether you’ve already been in classes for a couple of weeks or are still savoring those last sleep-until-noon days, you can’t deny that school is very much part of your reality now that August is racing to a close.

Hi Teenreaders,

Saturday, August 1st, was a tough day for my copy of AVENUE OF MYSTERIES by John Irving (11/03/2015). I had just arrived at the beach in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica, and was about to open my bag to retrieve the galley, feeling content at the mere idea of reading an all-time favorite author in one of the most beautiful places in the world. My daydreams were zapped, though, by a very mischievous and hungry raccoon; he ran over to my bag, proceeded to open it for me, and embarked on a mad hunt for nuts, berries and small animals. Chaos ensued --- my friend and I attempted to run away with the bag, and I secured a few raccoon scratches in the process (and a whole NINE SHOTS when I got back to the U.S --- the rabies vaccine is no joke). You can see the brazen little guy on the top left --- he’s quickly discovering that my hairbrush is not edible.
