    A great resource to have on hand to promote books for all topics and formats for young adults.

    Read for Teen Services/Materials course. There were small sections on intellectual freedom, cultural diversity and info books, but mostly this just discussed various genres of fiction. Many of those book descriptions need *spoiler alert* written beside them, so that was frustrating.

    Good textbook for beginning librarians working in teen library services. Lots of awesome books mentioned, but will date this text pretty quickly in the next year or so. Learned a lot of this info from other librarians and YALSA, but did not hurt to refresh of some topics.

    I learned more from this book than I learned from my actual professor. Which is sad because I was really looking forward to taking this class for a long time.
