Guardians Movie Night

GROOT: I am Groot.
STAR-LORD: Well, that's just as fascinating as the first 89 times you told me that.  What does it mean?
KATIE JANE: Let me translate.

Bring your pillow and watch a group of interstellar outlaws team up to save the planet.  Guardians of the Galaxy stars Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Zoë Saldana as Gamora, Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon, and Vin Diesel as Groot.  The film is rated PG-13 and runs for 2 hours and 2 minutes.  The Teen Spot's Guardians Movie Night will begin at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, July 7, 2015. Admission is free.  So are the snacks.

KATIE JANE: Did I get that right, Groot?
STAR-LORD: I'm pretty sure the answer is "I am Groot."
GROOT: I am Groot.
STAR-LORD: Told ya.

I cannot write a better description than the publisher.  So I won't.

"The Program has sent Boy Nobody on countless missions, instructed to kill whichever target he was given. But now, after going rogue, he is on his own mission to rescue his friend Howard, who was captured by The Program. Boy Nobody manages to free Howard as well as Tanya, a mysterious girl who was being held with him. Putting their skills to the test, Howard and Tanya help Boy Nobody collect information about his father, eventually revealing a dangerous secret that teaches Boy Nobody a valuable lesson -- he can't trust anyone. On the run from The Program, Boy Nobody must face his past, as he's forced to decide where his loyalties lie. Allen Zadoff packs the final installment in the Unknown Assassin trilogy with even more action, higher stakes, and mind-blowing reveals that will leave readers riveted."

  3. I Am the Traitor (no catalog record yet -- keep checking!)

Adolf Hitler is history's most reviled villain.  His regime of murder and terror haunts the world even today.  Bill O'Reilly explored Hitler's fall (and the two heroes who brought it about) in his adult book Killing Patton: The Strange Death of World War II's Most Audacious General.  The young reader's adapatation, Hitler's Last Days: The Death of the Nazi Regime and the World's Most Notorious Dictator, was published today, June 9, 2015.  It would make a great addition to your summer reading log.  There's no record for the book yet, but you can place a hold on the book-on-CD.  

"By early 1945, the destruction of the German Nazi State seems certain. The Allied forces, led by American generals George S. Patton and Dwight D. Eisenhower, are gaining control of Europe, leaving German leaders scrambling. Facing defeat, Adolf Hitler flees to a secret bunker with his new wife, Eva Braun, and his beloved dog, Blondi. It is there that all three would meet their end, thus ending the Third Reich and one of the darkest chapters of history."
