October 12th - 18th is Teen Read Week! We're currently in the middle of it but are you celebrating it? There are a few reasons as to why you should, one of these reasons being that the ambassador, whom I'm sure many of you will recognise, has recorded an introduction to tell you why this initiative is so important.

If you want more information on the YALSA you can click HERE to visit their website and find out more about their noble cause.
By signing up to the official website, friends can be made, book recommendations shared and more! It's a community to which anyone is welcome to join. And now, here's a few words from their ambassador, Willow Shields (The Hunger Games).
