About the Teen Voice Blog


The Mission Viejo Library Teen Voice blog exists to promote teen literacy. When visiting this blog, you can expect to find book reviews, book lists, author interviews, book trailers, and event reports for author talks and other related events. Other topics relevant to teens may be included.


Content is created by teens, for teens, under the guidance of the Mission Viejo Library’s Teen Services Librarian, Olivia Howard.

Are you in grades 6 – 12, and interested in earning volunteer service credit and gaining real-world writing experience that will look great on college applications while sharing your enthusiasm for teen literature?
