    Teens, join us in the Teen Room to discuss The Compound by S.A. Bodeen. This dystopian book tells the story of Eli who has lived in a compound with his family for six years. As problems begin to occur that threaten their sanctuary and sanity, Eli begins to think he’d rather take his chances outside of the compound. Copies of the book will be available in the Teen Room for you to checkout.
