My Picks for September

Fiction Book- I am the Cheese by Robert Cormier

Adam Farmer was having a normal day- until his girlfriend Amy calls and lets him know that a reporter has found out that there is nobody by the name of Farmer in the town that his father supposedly came from! Turns out that his father had uncovered a scandalous conspiracy, and now the Farmer family has to hide in order to save their own lives. Adam's memories slowly come back to him- who really is he?

Nonfiction book- The Teen Brain Book by Dale Carlson

How does your brain change when you are a teenager? Aren't you glad you can plan ahead now? Isn't thinking abstractly wonderful? Then why are you so confused about the many things in your life? All this and more in one simple and fun book.

Manga- Duklyon: CLAMP School Defenders by CLAMP

Kentarou, Takeshi, and Eri may seem like normal students of the CLAMP school who run a bakery. But they are also superheroes who dress up in armor to battle when necessary! Especially when it comes to keeping the Imonoyama Shopping District from taking over CLAMP School!

Anime- Saint Seiya

Seiya is the Knight of Pegasus. He and his comrades the Bronze Saints are now to protect Saori Kido, who is the reincarnation of the Goddess Athena. Now they must channel the power of the Cosmos and reach the mystical Gold Cloth of Sagittarius! Another fantastic old school anime.
