Jan Platt Library Teen Book Club :: Magyk by Angie Sage

Do you love reading? Looking for something new? Join us for our monthly Teen Book Club. We read and talk about books selected by teens like you!

On Thursday, Janurary 26th at 5:30pm we will be discussing Magyk by Angie Sage at Jan Platt Library. Come join the discussion and help select future books for the group to read. Copies of the book are available at Jan Platt Library for check out.

Come an hour earlier at 4:30 and join our Teen Advisory Board. Have a voice in creating library programs and recommending materials like graphic novels, manga, young adult fiction, and music. Help promote the library to other teens. T.A.B. members earn community service hours toward graduation, scholarships and more!

"After learning that she is the Princess, Jenna is whisked from her home and carried toward safety by the Extraordinary Wizard, those she always believed were her father and brother, and a young guard known only as Boy 412--pursued by agents of those who killed her mother ten years earlier."

See what other books our Book Club has been reading by checking out our bookshelf on Goodreads.
