Books & Brownies @THPS

Teens: write book reviews - get brownies!

That's right - free delicious brownies for book loving teens. Write reviews of your favorite books (or movies or music) for our teen reviews page. Or warn other teens about things that weren't any good. Bring reviews already written or take turns recording a review to be transcribed later. For each review you do you get a free brownie.

Want to know what we mean by a review? Find examples on the teen reviews page.
