The Beauty That Remains by Ashley Woodfolk (March 6, 2018)
YA  WOO  NEW BOOK (also available as ebook)

Loss pulled Autumn, Shay, and Logan apart. Will music bring them back together?  Autumn always knew exactly who she was: a talented artist and a loyal friend. Shay was defined by two things: her bond with her twin sister, Sasha, and her love of music. And Logan has always turned to writing love songs when his real love life was a little less than perfect. But when tragedy strikes each of them, somehow music is no longer enough. Now Logan is a guy who can't stop watching vlogs of his dead ex-boyfriend. Shay is a music blogger who's struggling to keep it together. And Autumn sends messages that she knows can never be answered.  Despite the odds, one band's music will reunite them and prove that after grief, beauty thrives in the people left behind.

It's always a hit, so we're bringing it back for our first teen event of Summer Reading 2018.  Sign up for our Mario Kart Tournament on Monday, June 4, 2018 at 6:30 p.m.  Play Mario Kart on the Wii against your friends and fellow gamers on the big screen.  The victor will win a prize.  You can register online or by phone (444-7826).  The tournament is open to rising 7th-12th graders.
