    The Johnson County Library's award winning teen literary magazine, elementia, is open for submissions. This year we bring our theme back home, thinking about what home means to you as a writer or artist. elementia accepts submissions of original teen short prose, poetry and art focused on this theme now through Friday, Dec. 5.

    Your perspective on a place depends on where you are standing. Where is your place? What is your place? When is your place? Who is your place? Why?

Who Will Save the World?


The age old question of pitting your favorite characters against each other and guessing who would come out on top! See Thor, Cap and Logan take on Ash, Master Chief, Alyx and the Player. Of course in my mind Cap helps them talk out their differences and it ends in a big group hug, but the reality is far more action packed.

Reviewer's Rating: 

Mysti Murphy is not having a good 7th grade year. Her only friend, Anibal Gomez, has developed a crush on a Cheer Squad girl and has decided to change his image in an effort to be noticed. Part of Anibal's "social experiment" is to develop a hipster persona that he thinks his new crush will admire. To see if his experiment works, he needs to ditch Mysti. Anibal decides that he and Mysti can talk and text in the evenings and on weekends, but they must have NO contact during school. Mysti has no other friends, so she now sits alone at the Loser Island in the cafeteria at lunchtime.
