Teen Book Spotlight--Science Fiction pt. 2!!!

Our teen book spotlight this week is all about Science Fiction!!! What I love about Science Fiction is that there are so many different types and aspects--Science Fiction is defined as anything that could possibly happen in the future and it does not mean that it has to be in outer space even though that is a common setting.  Science Fiction can contain a number of topics from robots and artificial intelligence, to living in outer space and intergalactic wars.  We even have Science Fiction that contains some dystopian elements about how life could be extremely different in the future depending on what does or does not take place.  There is literally something for everyone in this genre!!!! These books and more can be found by searching the catalog using the search tag #yascifi as well as on Libby and Hoopla.  Check back next week for a new teen book spotlight and if you have any book suggestions, please let us know!!
