Pagers Selection for Middle School: 

Hawking's Hallway by Neal Shusterman and Eric Elfman 
From the Publisher
Nick Slate, in order to protect his father and little brother, reluctantly must help the Accelerati complete Tesla's great device. Their power-mad leader wants nothing less than to control the world's energy—but there are still three missing objects to track down.

Nick's friends can't help him, as they are spread across the globe grappling with their own mysteries—with Vince in Scotland, Caitlin and Mitch on their way to New Jersey, and Petula's whereabouts unknown. On his own, Nick must locate Tesla's final inventions-—which are the most powerful of all, capable of shattering time and collapsing space.

Pagers Selection for Freshmen & Sophomores:

Feed by M.T. Anderson
From the Publisher
For Titus and his friends, it started out like any ordinary trip to the moon - a chance to party during spring break and play with some stupid low-grav at the Ricochet Lounge. But that was before the crazy hacker caused all their feeds to malfunction, sending them to the hospital to lie around with nothing inside their heads for days. And it was before Titus met Violet, a beautiful, brainy teenage girl who has decided to fight the feed and its omnipresent ability to categorize human thoughts and desires. Following in the footsteps of George Orwell, Anthony Burgess, and Kurt Vonnegut Jr., M. T. Anderson has created a not-so-brave new world—and a smart, savage satire that has captivated readers with its view of an imagined future that veers unnervingly close to the here and now.

Books are available for $5 in the library and Cadet Maker. Please sign up by May 4th. Discussions will take place on May 18th during the B Block.
