Booklist Reviews 2007 August #1

*Starred Review* As the teen specialist at Downers Grove Public Library, Booth brings together her experience working with an active readers'-advisory department as well as her knowledge of teen library patrons to cover all aspects of readers' advisory for teens. The first few chapters discuss teen reading habits and why readers' advisory for this group is different and also provide "Tips for the Generalist" who may not be an expert in teen fiction. Other chapters cover elements of the readers'-advisory interaction ("Opening the Readers's Advisory Interview," "Detecting Interest," "Articulating Appeal") and survey the various resources and tools that are available for identifying appropriate books. Two unique chapters offer well- thought-out and practical advice on making reading-related homework assignments less painful for staff and students as well as suggestions for providing readers'-advisory services to teens through their parents or other adults. Appendixes list popular authors, "sure bets," and teen-selected book awards. Filled with excellent tips and great ideas, Serving Teens through Readers' Advisory makes an important contribution to readers'-advisory services and is essential reading for all readers' advisors and any library staff who work with teens. Highly recommended for all school and public libraries. Copyright 2007 Booklist Reviews.
