"I will say this for Kylo, I think he gets a bad rap," says one officer. "He's trying to accomplish something that's never been done in the history of the galaxy. You know, rule everything? That's impressive, I admire the guy."
I don't know who this Rubik is but his cube looks difficult.
The Outsiders was a groundbreaking book for talking about teenagers that felt different and left out from their peers. Since then, young adults books have taken on this theme in many different ways. Sometimes characters are outcasts because they are "nerds," sometimes because their reputation has been ruined, and sometimes they just do not quite fit in.
Spoiler alert: although it may seem easier to just follow the crowd, it is always more rewarding to just be yourself. Yes, this may sound cheesy, but its true, and if you don't realize it now you will realize it one day.
In the meantime, try some of these books that take on this theme and enjoying reading about the struggles the different characters face. Come to the Nyack Library Teen Room and find all these books on display and ready to be checked out!!

Human Body Theater by Maris Wicks
This non-fiction graphic novel is a light hearted introduction to human anatomy. A lovable skeleton is the master of ceremonies takes us through the systems of the body. Nothing is glossed over or held back. Ms. Wicks tells it like it is when discussing the digestive system, puberty and the reproductive system.
Her illustrations are colorful and engaging. Organs, glands and even cells are drawn with adorable human facial expressions and there are factual diagrams of each body system. A great reference.
