Booklist Review: "It's no secret that many teens don't like to read, but what is less apparent are the reasons why. The authors of this practical guide relied on surveys and interviews with young adults, teachers, and librarians to determine why so many kids can't, won't, or don't read. They've analyzed their findings to create innovative solutions, presented here in three sections: helpful tips, recommended titles (annotated bibliographies sorted by genre and format), and effective tools (booktalk styles and scripts and a sample reader's survey). Several young adult authors have contributed essays or observations. These realistic, field-tested strategies will appeal to classroom teachers and media specialists, and all youth librarians will appreciate the collection-development guidance. Any collection that serves teens should make this a first-priority purchase. --Kathleen McBroom Copyright 2007 Booklist"
