Teen Issues Council is a new program being piloted at the Bathurst Clark Resource Library and Civic Centre Resource Library locations. Teen Issues Council is for teens 13+. We will discuss issues that matter to teens in an open and safe environment. Teens will gain public speaking skills, presentation skills and even debating skills. A librarian will be present at the meetings to guide teens to authoritative sources and also to help teens set up community speakers to present at their sessions. We are hoping that you will be able to promote this program to clubs in your school as well as in the guidance office. It will be held every Thursday night 7:00 – 8:30pm at Bathurst Clark and 3:30-5:00pm at Civic Centre. They can register either by emailing me @ Christine.oosterhof@vaughan.ca (please let me know which one you want to join) or calling 905-653-7323 and asking to speak to the information desk.

RiksedThe novel Risked is a part of Margaret Peterson’s book series The Missing. it is the sixth book in it’s series and the genres are action and adventure. This series is mainly about time travel and survival.

This book is about three young kids named Jonah, Katherine, and Chip. One day, Jonah and Katherine were searching the web when suddenly they came across a very mysterious picture of a young boy named Alexei Romanov, he is one of the missing children of history and he was hier to the throne of the Russian Empire. They started doing research and it turns out that he had four sisters named Olga, Tatiana, Maria and Anastasia. While they were doing their research they heard the door bell ring, outside was a young girl named Daniela who coincidently looked alot like Anastasia. Soon enough, Jonah, Katherine, and Chip set out on an adventure to see what really happened to Alexei Romanov, they went to a time travel cave and went back in time to save the young boy.

On their mission to save the Romanov family from execution they end up as prisoners in a russian jail. One major problem in this story is not being caught by JB, Second, Gary, and Hodge as they as time patrollers that make sure there is nor time travel in the world. There they saw the Romanovs so they helped them escape right before it was time for their execution by turning invisable and opening all the doors.

Overall I think that this is a very good novel and it was worth the time reading it, i would recommend this novel to people who enjoy Adventure and action packed books because this book is full of it. I recommend this book because it has a very unique plot in the beginning of the story and it has a big problem in the middle of the story .The age groups I recommend this book to are 9-13 because it has some violence and I might be too boring to older kids. In my opinion I think that the author did an amazing job making the storyline and characters believable.
