MEDIA REVIEWS
"Lively annotations cover plot and appeal, indicating availability in multiple formats, and are searchable by author-title indexing. With a broad scope, the guide is necessarily selective, and, as in most library collections, books still predominate. An eclectic resource for public libraries with broad collections." - Booklist
"Recommended for those who find the need to do any kind of reader's advisory (now known as integrated advisory work) and need not only a concise overview of a genre but also thoughts about what to suggest next in various areas. Especially helpful with YA work." - Teacher Librarian
"The book is organized around genres, and the chapters were written by some of the most recognizable names in RA. . . . An innovative guide to encourage librarians to think beyond the book when providing RA service." - American Libraries
