The Orca Soundings series books are really just books that are not connected to one another, but are all published by a company whose mission is to provide interesting books to teens who are improving their reading skills. I’ve enjoyed those that I’ve read, and they are pretty popular in our library, so we’ve got some new titles for you. Check these out from the 372.41 special collection:
