Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Published in 2004, the first edition of Best Books for High School Readers provided librarians with an extensive list of recommended titles for youth in grades 9-12. This supplement brings that reference up to date, covering titles published between early 2004 and the middle of 2006. Over 2,500 annotated entries are organized by literary type or subject/theme." - Reference & Research Book News

"[T]he most comprehensive of the selective children's book selection tools." - Christian Library Journal

"They are trusted resources especially when topic and genre are paramount in one's search for just the right title or focused collection. Highly recommended." - Teacher Librarian
