The Lee County Library System is holding a Teen One Book One Community read of Lauren Oliver's book, "Before I Fall," starting now and culminating during Teen Read Week, Oct. 14-20.
The Teen One Book One Community program encourages teens to read the same book at the same time. The Lee County Library System has numerous activities planned around the book, including book discussions, writing projects, art projects and special events at all of the 13 library locations.
The teens voted to select the author and title during the first quarter of 2012 and selected "Before I Fall," an award winning and New York Times bestseller. There will be prizes for the best alternate ending of the book and best answers to trivia questions.
