Synopsis: More teenagers than ever turn to librarians and teachers to ask private questions they are too afraid to share with family and friends. This book offers any librarian a quick primer on talking with young adults about the tough and often controversial topics of sex, drugs, alcohol, and violence. You ll have quick overviews on the issues themselves as well as tips for navigating these waters with teens. Each chapter offers background information on a particular topic followed by real-world strategies for supporting teens who may ask for help, often indirectly. Chapters include sex, sexuality, homelessness, tattoos and piercings, dating violence, abuse, drugs and alcohol, emotional and mental health, and the juvenile justice system. Within these chapters, you ll find answers to specific questions about maintaining online sexual health resources, creating passive health displays, working in a school or community with abstinence-only values and/or curriculum, creating positive atmospheres for healthy discussions, making the library a safe space for everyone, and maintaining teen privacy when other teens speculate about a certain situation real strategies for the issues teenagers face every day. You ll also learn how to develop protocol for all of the above situations, notice signs of abuse, report to the proper authorities, develop partnerships with agencies inside and outside the justice system, and provide much-needed mental health resources in a confidential way. With a straightforward, conversational style, mk Eagle, YALSA blog manager and high school librarian in Holliston public schools in Massachusetts, gives you the tools to answer any question for teens to support their mental, physical, and emotional well-being.

From Booklist: *Starred Review* Teens—the often maligned, frequently feared, and mostly misunderstood class of patrons served by public libraries—are the focus of this new series developed in partnership with the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA). Designed as a boot-camp-in-a-book for library staff new to teen services, the titles in this series address issues and aspects of library services specific to adolescents, from communicating with teens about controversial aspects of their life experiences to collecting data collection and demonstrating benefits of quality programs to tightfisted administrations and boards. These slim, succinct guidebooks, written by knowledgeable and well-known YA practitioners, provide practical advice, background theory and data, and easily customizable paths for library workers to follow while trying to provide high-quality, high-impact services to a group of patrons that deserves respect and is sorely in need of attention. Written by YALSA blog manager and high-school librarian Eagle, Answering Teens’ Tough Questions attempts to provide the information required to arm any librarian tasked with interacting with teens in the library (everyone, eventually), a road map for answering any question, silly or serious, in a way that will help put both patron and staff member at ease. As Eagle points out, library staff often have little idea about the day-to-day lives of the teens in the communities they serve. Librarians therefore often feel ill-equipped to interact with these teens in a meaningful way. Short chapters address issues from violence to dating and sex, mental illness, substance abuse and homelessness, providing background information about each topic and plenty of real-life scenarios and examples that library staff can use to address specific questions. Equally useful are the abundant adolescent-development data and additional resources intended for use by staff to promote empowerment among their teen patrons. An excellent resource that all public and school libraries should acquire. --Magan Szwarek
