Adolescents have certain needs that should be fulfilled by what they read. Ideally, they need to have access to books in which they are able to find themselves in what they read, and they need to be able to access books consisting of current, accurate, well-chosen material dealing with issues important to them and that can be applied to their lives. The YA Hotline (Dalhousie University) was started for those who aspire to guide teens in this respect, whether in the school or public library or in the classroom.

The subject matter of the YA Hotline centers on reading interests and information services for young adults. The Hotline has been published for over two decades and is distributed via subscription to a world-wide audience. The Best of the YA Hotline offers a generous cross-section of the periodical's most relevant subjects over the past 20 years. Each article features a topic or issue of timeless importance, followed by reviews of helpful or recommended titles. The exploration of issues like environmental consciousness, youth and athletics, witchcraft, and multiculturalism goes hand-in-hand with literary genres like horror, science fiction, graphic novels and biography. This collection is diverse, accessible, and will provide valuable insight into some of the different ways that writers have attempted to identify with and address their target audience.

Librarians and teachers who work with teens need to learn about adolescents: their ambitions, fears, and needs, in order to construct services appropriate for them. The Best of the YA Hotline is a great way to begin to understand the issues and literature that can be applied to the lives of today's youth.

About the Author:

Vivian Howard is a Lecturer in the School of Library and Information Studies at Dalhouisie University in Halifax, NS. She has been editor of the YA Hotline for the past four years.

From School Library Journal:

YA Hotline is a newsletter written by graduate students in the School of Library and Information Studies at Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia. This resource contains selected articles from issues from 1989 to 2000. Topics include eating disorders, comics and graphic novels, learning to drive, witchcraft, multiculturalism, and science fiction. Each of the 11 articles (with contributions by at least 3 graduate students per topic) includes an overview; specific information regarding the topic; and an annotated bibliography of books, materials, and Web sites. The appendix updates the list of resources for each article. While some of the material isn't current at this point in time, the editor states that the topics are a sampling of relevant issues over the years. The information is well written and would be a good choice for entry-level librarians to gain a sense of perspective and to guide graduate students through the basics of YA literature. Although there are no specific instructions on programming within the topics, one could take the foundation of information provided and build upon it.
