Check out the new MMS Library Lounge. Ms. Driscoll and Mrs. Monteiro put together this special section of the library for relaxing and reading a good book. Whenever you have finished your work early or are after school, the lounge is a great place to read new books like Insignia by S.J. Kincaid, a science fiction novel new to the MMS library.
Here is a brief description of Insignia.
The earth is in the middle of WWIII, the planet’s natural resources are almost gone, and war is being fought to control the assets of the solar system. The enemy is winning. The salvation may be Tom Raines. Tom doesn’t seem like a hero. He’s a short fourteen-year-old with whose life is going from casino to casino winning just enough money for him and his dad to have a roof over their heads. But he has the virtual-reality gaming skills that make him phenomenal behind the controls of the battle drones.
So, as a new member of the Intrasolar Forces, Tom’s life completely changes. Suddenly, he’s someone important. He has new opportunities, friends, and a shot at having a girlfriend. But there’s a price to pay that can cost him everything.
So come check out the Library Lounge and read a new book like Insignia. The library is open to everyone all day.
