SC Department of Revenue Breach – Important Information for Teens
On October 26, 2012, the South Carolina Department of Revenue announced that millions of social security numbers and thousands of credit and debit card numbers had been exposed as the result of a cyber-attack. Anyone who filed a tax return in SC since 1998 may be at risk. While most teens have not filed tax returns, they may have been listed as dependents on their parent or guardian’s filings and their personal information may have been compromised.
How can teens protect themselves in the wake of this security breach?

The Last Dragonslayer
Fans of Fforde’s other works (the Thursday Next Series, Shades of Grey) will recognize the subtle and offbeat humor sprinkled throughout The Last Dragonslayer. Fforde’s first foray into teen fiction follows the young Jennifer Strange, a not-quite 16 year old foundling who has taken on the task of running Kazam magical management. When magicians across the country begin to have premonitions of the death of the last dragon, and something called Big Magic, Jennifer decides to get to the bottom of things by seeking out the last dragonslayer.
