Youths ranging in age from 7 to 13 years old gathered at the Payson Public Library's first teen book club meeting, Saturday, Nov. 17.
"They renamed the group Spy Club," said Harryette Stanley, children's librarian.
Stephen Leneberg introduced Steven Plues to "Goosebumps" because "they are absolutely the best books ever," Leneberg said.
Quincy Thornhill recommended "The Ordinary Princess" to the group and Payton Hannasch suggested the "funny" "Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing."
In addition to deciding on a name and recommending books, the youths played a spy code game.
Corey Morgan figured out the spy code writing method almost instantly.
"The kids had fun and let loose playing Spy Charades and they really got into acting out the characters," Stanley said.
Until the next monthly meeting, Spy Club members will each read their book of choice in the spooky genre.
Spy Club members will talk about the books at the Dec. 15 meeting, that is Saturday at 2 p.m.
Club members voted to read "Vampire Island," a book about vegetarian vampire girls for the Jan. 19 meeting.
"If anyone is interested in joining, please let me know so I can make sure to order enough books for everyone," Stanley said.
