Here are some titles guaranteed to make you tap your toes, burst into song, or rock out. All these titles are available in our Young Adult collection – and a lucky few are also available either as e-books or audio books. Check out our catalog for more details.
Awesome Book With Beat: Audrey, Wait! by Robin Benway
Our Teen Services librarian read this back in May or June, and was bouncing around for a good week afterward. Audrey is your average music-loving girl – who just happens to have a song written about her. Think that’s awesome? It’s not in her case. Throw in a wisecracking best friend (“My name is Victoria, like the Queen”), a job at the Scooper Dooper, and a potted plant that serves as a hall pass – and you’ll be cracking up and downloading almost every song Robin Benway even *references*. (Miss Kate’s favorite song from the book: Mama Said Knock You Out by LL Cool J).
Audrey, Wait! is available in hardcover in our YA section.
