Hi, I'm Clair C. I work at the Main Branch of the Ouachita Parish Public Library with teens.  I've been with the library since Feb. 2008.  It started off as my part-time after school job, but I fell in love with the library and have been here ever since.

In the 8th grade I read the book "The Giver" and have been in love with dystopian books even since.  I also like angsty teen novels, fantasy and some science fiction.  I am absolutely in love with Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, and the Ender's Game series.  Though it's not my first choice, its not uncommon for me to read Young Adult Chick Lits--nothing wrong with a little drama and romance.

Here is a list of some of my favorite YA books:
  • 1984 by George Orwell
  • A Time for Dancing by DAvida Willis Hurwin
  • The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
  • The Divergent Triology by Veronica Roth
  • Elsewhere by Gabrielle Zevin
  • Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card
  • Fault in our Stars by John Green
  • The Giver by Lois Lowry (and the companion books)
  • The Harry Potter series by JK Rowling
  • The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins
  • Inkheart by Cornelia Funke
  • My Heartbeat by Garret Freymann-Weyr
  • Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
  • The Percy Jackson Series by Rick Riordan
  • Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
  • The Uglies series by Scott Westerfield
