Beautiful Creatures

More paranormal activity among teens with romance on their minds.


Drama

Rod Lott
I'm beginning to think that YA stands not for "young adult," but "yet another" — as in yet another book-based, supernatural-tinged teen romance to emerge in Twilight's wake. Beautiful Creatures is one of them. It's much better than Twilight, but hell, what's not?

Booking it to Moore

Residents of a Texas retirement community contribute to a local book drive for Moore schoolchildren.


News

Molly Evans
Residents of a senior living community in East Texas were deeply touched by news reports of the May 20 tornado that devastated Moore. The seniors — some of them retired teachers, some grandparents and great-grandparents — were especially concerned about the young students of Plaza Towers and Briarwood, the two elementary schools demolished by that EF5 twister.
