The Forbidden Doors Series - A Review

Guest Author - Paula Laurita

Many young adult Christian patrons are looking for a scary read. Their parents don't want them reading horror literature. What can the library offer these patrons?

Librarians are charged with offering literature to people with a wide variety of interests and viewpoints. Collection development is much more than purchasing the hot new book recommended by Oprah.

How do you meet the needs of young patrons who do not want to or may not be allowed to read Harry Potter or Christopher Pike? Neither do they want sappy, goody-goody stories. There are alternatives available in Christian fiction. This genre may not be familiar to you. Just as with other types of literature, there are excellent, compelling stories and poorly written books.

One series written for young adults is the Forbidden Door Series. The originating author, Bill Myers, is a prolific writer. He is famous for combining his stories with humor in the McGee & Me and Wally McDoogle series. They impart spiritual values with wit and a light hand.

The Forbidden Door books are thrillers written for teens. In The Encounter Myers addresses spirit writing. Kristi is receiving messages, written in her own hand. What is the truth? Is an alien trying to communicate with Kristi? Will Kristi's boyfriend Philip discover uncover the danger in time? This is number 6 is a series with several titles.

If you are interested in providing a challenge, online quizzes have been written for some of the books in this series.
