“Imagine Your Story” Teen Booklists

The theme for this year’s Summer Reading was “Imagine Your Story” with an emphasis on fairy tales, mythology, and folklore. Throughout the summer, we posted book recommendations to our teen instagram, but in case you missed it and are looking for your next fantasy read, check out the books below! 

Shanon Barton works in Youth Services at the Kirkwood Public Library. She started volunteering for KPL when she was in 7th grade and loves that she gets to work there as her “real adult job.” When not hanging out in the stacks at work, she can be found at home watching Netflix, eating pizza rolls, and planning themed events with friends. If you catch her with her nose in a book, it will most likely be a YA historical fiction novel with some sprinkling of supernatural or magical elements.
