More teen activities

Well, I just noticed that I have been very negligent in posting to my teen zone blog! My apologies to those of you out there who keep up with it. I need to mark it on my calendar or something to remember it more often! Definitely one of my New Year's resolutions ... update blog more often.

But, as usual, I have been busily reading for RITBA. Right now I have Sarah Dessen's The Truth About Forever sitting on my night table. It's a story about a girl whose dad dies and she is still trying to cope with her grief a year later. She lives a very orderly life but ends up working with a very disorganized catering company. I haven't finished it yet but it's interesting so far.

The other book I have been reading is The Painters of Lexieville by Sharon Darrow. This one is a lot shorter in length than the other so I think I'll have it finished first. It's about a very poor family in a rural area just trying to get by but it's sad because the main female character just got badly beaten by a neighbor man who was always going after her! It was pretty horrible the way the beating is described. Hope something good happens in the end!

Also, Teen Zone has been busy lately which is great and we've had bead night, Sculpey clay and collage craft nights! Tomorrow night is movie night and we'll watch a very funny movie: Dodgeball starring Ben Stiller & Vince Vaughan!
