Local teen becomes Book Reviewer with other teens across the country: The Book Report Network started TeenReads and it has been around since 1996. TeenReads is a well-respected site used by Barnes and Noble, Amazon, Twitter, Facebook, and Youtube where books are reviewed and recommended for teens across the country. This site offers opportunities to develop all sorts of Reading Lists. Twice a year this site affords an opportunity for teens to become members of their board. It is a competitive, rigorous process. MMS Language Arts teacher, Tami Schoff, encouraged her students to apply. In December Lucia Wiegert, an 8th grade student, was chosen to be a member of their board. Teen Board members write reviews, write blog posts, answer the monthly Teen Board questions, participate in special features and give much-needed feedback about the site, publishing trends, and pop culture.
