MEDIA REVIEWS
"The best feature in this resource book is the use of genre lists, ranging from common themes such as Humor and Vampires to more complex topics such as Life in the Fat Lane: Books About Food Issues for Teens, Femail Quest Stories, and Aftereffects of Violence. These premade lists help librarians give children personal library service even when they are busy with multiple responsibilities. Each title listed in the book contains a brief annotation and bibliographic information, making it easy for librarians to locate the desired titles and get them into the hands of young people quickly. Even if you already have readers' advisory materials at your disposal, this would be one worth adding." - Reference & User Services Quarterly
"Keane is library media specialist at Rundlett Middle School, Concord, NH. Here, she presents 100 reading lists containing classic and contemporary fiction and nonfiction and designed for young people ages 13-18. The list titles are organized by six main themes: genres (e.g. clean romance, hip hop literature, narrative nonfiction), characters (African American girls, boy bonding), books about self (anger, cutting, peer-pressure), setting, subjects, and audience (reluctant girl and boy readers). The lists are intended to be photocopied for classroom use, and range from half a page to about four pages in length. For each book, bibliographical information and a two line synopsis is provided. Keane also provides a number of bookmarks that refer fans of certain popular books to similar material." - Reference & Research Book News
"^BStarred Review^R [T]his title is well put together by a talented librarian who loves working in the school media center. It consists of 100 Great, Ready-to-Use Book Lists for Educators, Librarians, Parents and Teens....Often in high school, YA is considered one size fits all. The differences between a 13-year-old freshman and an 18-year-old senior can be profound. The index uses both author and title allowing the user to look up a work or author and get teaching ideas. Highly Recommended." - Library Media Connection
"[R]ecommended for Christian school librarians and other interested adults." - Christian Library Journal
"Keane has produced another great resource for teachers, librarians, and students, especially reluctant readers. The annotated bibliographies include titles on hot topics and popular genres. Well organized, the book can be used to build collections in the specific subject areas. As noted in the introduction, all titles were in print as of August 2005. This would also be a good resource for YA literature classes. Reproducible book lists and bookmarks (with complete citations) will be helpful to students, parents, librarians, and teachers." - School Library Journal
"Listing fiction and nonfiction published mostly in the last 10 years, this volume is divided into six parts: Genres, Characters, Books about Self, Setting, Subjects, and Audience. Each section covers a variety of topics. For example, under Setting, topics range from Ancient Civilization to World War II; Genres has subsections for Fairy Tale Variations Horror, Humor, and more. The subsections are in turn divided into separate lists for younger and older teens. Each title entry contains a bibliographic reference and a brief annotation of one or two sentences. Following the six sections, the book provides some sample reproducible bookmarks suggesting further reading on specific topics....[a] good beginning resource for parents and teachers." - Booklist/Professional Reading
