High School
 New York Times best-selling author of The Chronicles of Nick series Sherrilyn Kenyon and author Alethea Kontis (Enchanted series, Trix Adventures) visited Monte Vista's library Friday January 20. Fifty-five students were able to meet the authors, ask questions about writing and publishing, and get autographs. Kenyon said, "never let anyone tell you you can't achieve your dreams."
