"This title will be useful for public library YA specialists, school library media specialists, and other library staff seeking to develop, expand, and enhance teen services in library environments as well as in the virtual world. Recommended." - ARBA
"For the librarian working with teens, this book provides valuable information on teens themselves and how to provide a variety of resources that they need and want. . . . This would be an ideal book for librarians new to teen services or who must work in teen services in addition to other duties. Those who are already dedicated teen service librarians could also utilize the information in this book for additional programming ideas, displays, and teen worker resources. Recommended." - School Library Connection
