Stuff for the Teen Age, Food for Thought
You're Allergic to WHAT?
You may not know (really, it's OK; I didn't either until I looked it up) that September is Food Allergy Awareness Month. If you're looking for a science topic for that back-to-school project, or just want to better understand a friend or family member with a food allergy, there are tons of great resources here at the Library.
And if you like your learning in comic form, check out Ayun Halliday and Paul Hoppe's amazing Peanut. This graphic novel is about making new friends, crushing on the only teen in the world who doesn't want a cell phone, and the price of keeping secrets.
