Meet up with book lovers just like you for a discussion of Renegades by Marissa Meyer on Tuesday, May 23rd @ 4 pm. Free snacks and drinks will be provided. Stop by the Aurora or Dillsboro Library to pick up your copy today!
The Renegades are a syndicate of prodigies — humans with extraordinary abilities — who emerged from the ruins of a crumbled society and established peace and order where chaos reigned. As champions of justice, they remain a symbol of hope and courage to everyone… except the villains they once overthrew.
Nova has a reason to hate the Renegades, and she is on a mission for vengeance. As she gets closer to her target, she meets Adrian, a Renegade boy who believes in justice — and in Nova. But Nova’s allegiance is to a villain who has the power to end them both.
Everyone ages 13-19 is welcome to attend! We can’t wait to see you there!

Pay close attention and you might solve this:
On Monday afternoon, five students at Bayview High walk into detention:
Bronwyn, the brain, is Yale-bound and never breaks a rule
Addy, the beauty, is the picture-perfect homecoming princess
Nate, the criminal, is already on probation for dealing
Cooper, the athlete, is the all-star baseball pitcher
And Simon, the outcast, is the creator of Bayview High’s notorious gossip app
Only, Simon never makes it out of that classroom alive. And according to investigators, his death wasn’t an accident. He died on a Monday. But that Tuesday, he’d planned to post juicy reveals about all four of his high-profile classmates. Now, all four of them are suspects in his murder. Are they guilty? Or are they the perfect patsies for a killer who’s still on the loose?
They all have a motive. They all have something to hide. They all have a history with Simon. And one of them is definitely lying.
