Parman Book Review: “Love and Gelato” by Jenna Evans Welch

Posted in Uncategorized on March 28, 2017 by parmanlibraryteens

 

love and gelatoAfter reading the first few pages of Love & Gelato, I worried I would not enjoy it because I felt as though the writing did not flow well and is bombarded with trite similes and some awkward attempts at humor. Thankfully this feeling did not last for long, as I was quickly able to connect with the narrator, Lina. Although she could be a bit oblivious at times, Lina was quite likable, and her funny thoughts and realistic dialogue kept me endlessly entertained. Lina was actually mature – unlike many of the characters that seem to dominate young adult literature – and handled her mother’s passing and following changes in her life like any reasonable sixteen-year-old would. The setting, Italy, is my favorite part of the novel, for Welch captures the magic of the city of Florence with breathtakingly scenic details. In addition, the mystery surrounding the relationship between Lina’s mother and father is suspenseful and engaging as Lina uncovers secrets regarding her heritage through her mother’s journal entries. Overall, Love & Gelato is a sweet, summery read that perfectly balances a light, breezy, and fun story with the moving idea of the importance of family. Niraja

Encino Teens February Fun!

Posted in anime, Games & Gaming, Library Programs, San Antonio Public Library, Uncategorized with tags on March 2, 2017 by encinolibraryteens

Encino Teens had a really fun February that involved using our WiiU for all types of gaming, making pizza cake pops, drawing tons of cool anime and manga-inspired works, and constructing duck tape roses for our valentines. We munched our way through way too much heart-shaped candy, played a laugh-out-loud game of Superfight, and felt inner peace after doing some zentangle drawing. Our Anime Club finished the first season of Nanbaka (which we all highly recommend!), with some other anime episodes peppered in.  Join us for another fun-filled month in March featuring a special Teen Tech Week edition teen time and more Anime Club every Monday! *By Julia, your Encino Teen Librarian*
