Book lists--best books, outstanding books, books of the century--tend to generate heated discussion. But when the American Library Association, in conjunction with the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), publishes the newest edition of the classic More Outstanding Books for the College Bound, avid readers everywhere pay attention.

In a newly updated edition covering forty-five years of recommended titles-- from 1959-2004--readers get to identify the most frequently cited titles and explore by genre. More than just a list of outstanding books, this enjoyable, made-for-browsing reference:

Acts as a convenient collection development tool for libraries and community organizations Engages readers with lively annotations Provides a "quick look," graphical representation of the top twenty-three titles chosen over the life span of the lists Serves as an excellent study tool for both young adult and older readers

Coming from two of the most trusted sources to list "Outstanding Books," ALA and YALSA, this new edition stands as an authoritative guide. It's filled with fun and accessible information about great books. Designed for school library media specialists, YA librarians, and adults working with children and young adults as they prepare for their next educational adventure, it will also appeal to parents, teachers, counselors, and anyone committed to lifelong learning.
