Bright Young Things
If there's one thing we've noticed at Riverbend, it's that the book is not dead. In fact, some of our most loyal and excited customers are our teenagers. As soon as the school holidays start, we are inundated with these bright young things looking for something new and exciting to read while they have time off.
The Bright Young Things Bookclub is run by Jane Sullivan, and caters to teenagers in years 7 to 10, with ages ranging from 12 to 15.
