Talking to teens can be tough. Figuring out how to deliver effective reader’s advisory to this uniquely challenging group can be even tougher for young adult librarians and school media specialists. This important new book addresses the challenges of reader’s advisory for teens who often don’t know what’s available, aren’t sure what they want, and may even be embarrassed to ask for it. Here’s the insight you need to:

• Explore the qualities, attitudes, and resources that make teen-centered
reader’s advisory effective
• Investigate the characteristics of quality YA reader’s advisory
• Take an extensive look at YA literature and ten prominent teen book awards programs

written by an insightful, experienced YA Services Coordinator will give you great ideas for connecting with your teen patrons.
