Organizer: Belicia Tang
Welcome to Curious Teens! The purpose of this group is to encourage high school students to read more and engage in critical analysis of books of all genres. The sad reality is, most high school studenst these days are reading less and less. Caught up in the cutthroat competition to get into the best universities, high schoolers are hard-pressed for time to engage in extracurricular reading, rendering it an afterthought.

Feel free to post books reviews, book recommendations, and whatever thoughts you may have on any given text!
