About This Guide

Students and practiciing librarians seek information about young adult literature for varied purposes.  You might be looking for good books to recommend to a reluctant teen reader.  You might need reviews and other resources to counter a book challenge.  You might be creating a thematic reading promotion event, or planning a book talk, or just looking for a good, quick read.

The resources spotlighted in this guide were selected to help you complete assignments in LIS 404, Literature & Resources for Young Adults, as well as support your independent exploration of YA literature.
