"While book groups are an excellent means of outreach, these idiosyncrasies pose a particular challenge to librarians seeking to facilitate successful groups for fans of these genres. Fortunately, this comprehensive guide comes to the rescue. It is an excellent resource for both novices looking to initiate groups, and veterans seeking to breathe new life into existing factions....Although the book is not specifically aimed toward those who work with teenagers, young adult librarians (and educators that are so inclined) will have no difficulty adapting the suggestions and themes to young adults as needed for a book group, as well as utilizing it as a general collection-development tool. Particularly in these genres, where there is a lack of functional ideas of how to appeal to fans, this manual is indispensable." - VOYA
"The tips are helpful; everything from how to organize the meetings to how to break the monotony if things start becoming staid. The lists are comprehensive, and it's hard to imagine anyone not finding something of interest within these pages." - School Library Journal
