Adventure, fantasy, mystery/suspense—teens love genre fiction—and genre nonfiction! By focusing on the genres teens love, you'll find a great way to connect them with books and an effective means through which to promote some of today's best and most popular YA books. Whether you are a public or school librarian, teacher, or teen group leader, you'll love this book. It offers background information, ready-to-use booktalks, and related activities for more than 100 young adult titles, focusing on those published in the past 3 years. For each book, the author notes the reading level and alternative formats, such as nonfiction, graphic novels, and journal/diary. The book summary lists name and age of the main character, setting, any special features of the book, and gives a brief plot line. This is followed by a booktalk to use or adapt, approximately five extension activities (at least one of which requires research), and an annotated list of read-alikes and related works. Grades 6-12.
