Review:

Amazing excellent resource.... Could serve as a good buying guide for a core collection.... This book is very valuable to all YA librarians and is fascinating reading on its own. One almost wants to read it cover-to-cover. Buy it. --Catholic Library World, Vol 78, Number 4, June 2008

Some 100 books are organized into 10 categories that YA librarians will understand and find useful for patrons...Librarians will enjoy the author's strong personal viewpoint. --Booklist, September 15, 2007

...if you need an assortment of fresh titles with which to interest your teens, by all means sample this collection. --Teacher Librarian, October 2007
