MEDIA REVIEWS
"For those looking for a book to help them prepare to convince their public library director to let them build the young adult film collection and explain what to do with it once they get it, then this book needs to be on the list. It is really only for public librarians as it concentrates on creating a popular, circulating collection." - ARBAonline
"This useful resource will work for anyone considering starting a separate teen film collection, as well as for those looking for ideas about marketing films to teens." - VOYA
"This is an excellent guide for librarians interested in building a popular film collection to satisfy their teen audiences. It offers professionals an organized look at current films that have young adult appeal and provides analysis of the importance of such a collection. . . . Librarians will especially enjoy the section on films with literary origins that can help teens connect to literature through film. Within each category, alphabetical, annotated filmographies are easy to search and have ratings clearly listed. Additionally, there are up-to-date resources for print and online film reviews. Another cool feature for librarians to pass along to their teen customers is a listing of Web sites for teen filmmakers." - School Library Journal
"For librarians serving a teen population, this volume will be a very useful addition. . . . If you are thinking about, or beginning to develop a film collection for your library, this very helpful, quick-read guide will walk you through the process from beginning to end. While aimed primarily at the public library sector, if a school librarian is so inclined to establish this type of collection, the principles of the process still apply. Recommended." - Library Media Connection
"This guide for school and public librarians provides a list of films with teen appeal and offers advice on selecting new films as they become available. The cult and mainstream films listed are primarily intended for popular material collections. While most are entertaining, they also deal with moral, social, and personal issues, and are appropriate for school library collections. The guide provides annotated filmographies in categories of heroes, issues of identity, strong emotions, and educational entertainment. In addition, the authors address popular culture influences on teens, technology and format issues, how to get teen input, where to find reliable review sources, and programming with films." - Reference & Research Book News
