Librarian's Picks of the Week  
She Said Yes is an intense and fascinating memoir of an ordinary teenager growing up in suburban Colorado-and faced-as all teenagers are-with difficult choices and pressures. It is only now that the world knows Cassie Bernall as on of the Columbine High students killed by two rampaging schoolmates, that the choices she made offer a profound relevance to us all. Once a rage-filled young woman who walked a path similar to that of her killers, Cassie found a way our of her personal snares and, through her faith and a family's love, chose to embrace life with courage and conviction.
THE SEVEN STAGES OF WAR left much of the planed a charred wasteland. the future belongs to the next generation's chosen few, who must rebuild it. But to enter this elite group, candidates must first pass The Testing-their one chance at a college education and a rewarding career. Cia Vale is honored to be chosen as a Testing candidate, eager to prove her worthiness as a University student and future leader of the United Commonwealth, but on the eve of her departure, her father's advice hints to a darker side to her upcoming studies. To survive, Cia must choose: love without life of life without trust. What would you choose?
I have always felt out of place.

I am a friendless fifteen-year-old kid with nowhere to go.

I am weak.

But that's about to change.

I am learning to be strong.

I will not make anymore weak decisions.

Even if it costs me my life.

No matter how busy you may think you are, you must find time for reading, or surrender yourself to self-chosen ignorance.
              -Confucius
