  • Description

Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) stalwarts Pam Spencer Holley and Julie Bartel present a painstakingly selected trove of the very best YA literature as chosen by the members of YALSA-BK. Each book is fully annotated and generously cross-referenced, creating a rich resource that offers a wealth of ideas for any school or public librarian who works with collection development, readers’ advisory, reference or programming for young adults.

Here you’ll find thousands of book annotations organized into chapters covering dozens of hot topics, including:

• Teen issues (dating, peer pressure, suicide)
• Fantasy, horror, mystery and other genres
• Family situations
• Gender-specific literature
• Religious and inspirational fiction
• Pop culture
• Screenplays, novels in verse, books with great beginnings
• And more…

The accompanying CD-ROM features the Part I lists interspersed with the Part II annotations, making it easy for you to create booklists and bookmarks for readers. A full bibliography is included separately so you can easily copy-and-paste bibliographic information into the lists to create bibliographies for teachers and parents as well as collection development lists for your own use.

You’ll quickly come to rely on Annotated Book for Every Teen Reader: The Best from the Experts at YALSA-BK for its time-saving organization, the sweeping scope of its coverage, and the instant helpfulness of its carefully written annotations. With its extensive cross-references, even veteran YA librarians will find that this book sheds new light on the entire field of YA literature.
