Teen Think Tank: Beyond the Irish Isles

Hi Everyone!

March is Irish Heritage Month and we're celebrating with books and music from Ireland!  There's just something about the lush, rainy countryside that creates the perfect atmosphere for mysterious diversions; or perhaps light-hearted tales are more your style. Lucky for you, we have them all!

"Ireland is where strange tales begin and happy endings are possible." --Charles Haughey

Stay safe and have a great week!

#READ: Curse of the Specter Queen by Jenny Elder Moke

Curse of the Specter Queen Book Cover

1920s. Samantha Knox put away her childish fantasies of archaeological adventure the day her father didn't return home from the Great War. When a packages arrives at the antique bookshop where she works-- with a damaged diary inside-- Sam's peaceful life is obliterated. Ruthless men are intent on reclaiming the diary. Sam, her best friend, and her childhood crush are soon in the green hills outside Dublin, Ireland. Here they discover an ancient order planning to perform an occult ritual that will raise the Specter Queen, the Celtic goddess of vengeance and death, to bring about a war unlike any the world has ever seen. Now Sam must solve a deviously complex cipher that will lead to a bowl carved from the tree of life.
