Synopsis: Expert author Rollie Welch, a longtime member of YALSA's Best Books Committee and Quick Picks for Reluctant Young Adult Readers, makes collection building easy for school and public librarians through this extraordinarily sound, field-tested, and diverse selection of recommended, acclaimed, and award-winning titles. This remarkable new tool has been extensively revised and expanded to include a comprehensive, up-to-date guide to over 1,200 must-have titles across 34 different genres that will appeal to teens of all different ages, genders, ethnicities, and economic backgrounds. Along with materials that spans the gamut of fiction and non-fiction subgenres, from action and adventure to fantasy and history to science-fiction, Welch includes a number of innovative new sections dedicated to more specific interests, like supernatural beings, edgier "almost-street" literature, coming-of-age tales, graphic novels, religious-themed fiction, and new classics. Each title includes full bibliographic information along with an annotation that provides a brief plot and character summary, an audience recommendation, and content advisories. A companion CD-ROM offers titles and lists in various formats (Excel, Word) to facilitate easy collection maintenance, selection, and acquisition. Novice and veteran librarians alike will find this to be the ultimate go-to source for YA collection development.

Review: "Citations to reviews from Booklist, School Library Journal, VOYA, and Kirkys are included with each of 1386 title entries...the subject breakdown provides an interesting and practical list of titles for collections that might be lacking in one area or another...'Top 10' lists from various ALA committees and the inclusion of several years' worth of award winners help to give the volume an overall refined execution." --School Library Journal, June 2011

For both novice and experienced librarians who want to build teen collections that actually circulate. --School Library Journal

"…the book is a wide-reaching resource that introduces literature with appeal to young adults to an audience new to library work with teens." --VOYA, August 2011

"Welch retains graphic and nonfiction, but expands fiction into eleven genres...This change makes Welch's edition immediately more useful for readers' advisory and easier to read...libraries are advised...to supplement the first edition with this edition." --YALS, Fall 2011

"...includes nearly 900 main entry titles, plus more than 500 other titles listed within those entries…The annotations include both descriptive and critical information...This high quality resource is definitely recommended..." --Christian Library Journal, November 2011

"A must-have for all libraries that serve a teenage population, this title is an invaluable reference resource for collection development as well as for providing quality readers' advisory services to young adults." --Public Libraries, November/December 2011
