The Teen Otaku Association (which meets every Monday at Main, 6pm-8pm) reads a lot of manga and watches a lot of anime. Sometimes we also compare K-Pop groups or read choose-your-own-adventure Hamlet on stage. It's a toss-up.
The following are titles recommended by members of TOA and what we have to say about them. We could share a hundred more titles if asked, but we are most passionate about these series. We like their animated versions, too!

You think you know what someone wants, but you don't know 'how-to' find it. Never fear, if the person you're shopping for just happens to be a teen (who enjoys reading) then we can help.

When planning for college, it is imperative that your teen start researching their options as soon as possible. Why? Because there are merit scholarships available to students who are proactive and strategic in making sure they obtain qualifying academic scores.
