Teen Happy Hour: Donna Cooner

Calling all teens! Award winning young adult author Donna Cooner will be discussing her latest book, Screenshot, a "zeitgeisty" and socially relevant novel about social media and cyberbullying in high school today. Bring your questions! Also, just for you, we're taking 1/2 off all cafe drinks for the event.

About the Book:

Skye's social media game is always on point. Until her best friend, Asha, films an embarrassing video of Skye at a sleepover and posts it online. But Asha quickly deletes the post, so everything's okay. Right? Then Skye gets an anonymous message. Someone has texted her a screenshot from the video. This person threatens to share the shocking photo online . . . unless Skye does whatever they say. Skye’s perfect image -- and privacy -- are suddenly in jeopardy. What will Skye do to keep the screenshot under wraps? And who is trying to ruin her life?
