    This should have been more interesting than it was.

    A good resource, but poorly edited. I found a paragraph that repeated and lots of mistakes.

    Not horribly boring or unreadable for a textbook. Good source material.

    Although this was a textbook, the author was clearly grounded in up-to-date philosophy and resources in young adult literature and provided a lot of gap-filling for me in terms of genre. My reading list has grown exponentially, and I've made a goal to start a graphic novel/comics club at our school in order to reach those readers who currently don't have a niche. Chance is an author I would read again - this is a valuable resource for anyone who teaches or advises readers of young adult books.

    It had the potential to be good. However, it is thee worse case of editing I have ever seen. Names are misspelled, dates are wrong (they killed off Terry Pratchett while he was still alive), paragraphs are repeated word-for-word, etc. I am appalled that a book aimed at librarians would have such little regard for fact checking. It is especially heinous that this is the second edition.

    Great book so far - full of resources for finding books for YA and good clear definitions and explanations of book types.

    This is actually a really pleasant read for a textbook, I enjoyed it. Not only did it have great explanations, but also great booklists and suggestions for programs.

    Fairly good, but I felt like the chapter on diverse books should have covered more groups.
