    1. More for building a collection than for actual reader's advisory, because subject is the main filter. Never mind pacing, pov, length, tone, inclusion of mature content - some of that info. can be found in some of the individual listings, but those considerations are definitely assumed to be insignificant. Iow, 'what's it about' is all that matters.That being said, I did get a few titles to add to my to-read lists.

    2. Though a little bit dated in the lists of books (publication was in 2003) the beginning chapters are a good foundation for anyone interested in ya literature.(I was required to read the first couple chapters of this book as a part of my Library Science Graduate Class, Materials for Young Adults)

    3. This book is a great resource for YA collections. Each chapter presents a different genre and it covers the fact that some books fall into more than one genre. Helpful introductions to the genres and solid annotations make these lists great starting points for developing or maintaining a YA collection.

    4. A good reference book that describes the various genres in young adult literature. It also includes useful recommendations of books to read in each genre. A must for anyone interested in learning more about YA fiction.
