    1. This text book, unlike many textbooks (A History of the Holocaust: From Ideology to Annihilation) was a pleasure to read. I found the entire thing to be quite interesting, and rather impossible to skim, which is an often-utilized method of reading textbooks. The huge list of books given as examples are an awesomely useful resource, though it becomes dated quickly.

    2. This is one of the most useful textbooks I have come across in the MLIS program. I just wish it was printed on better quality paper.

    3. This book is a very useful resource for the person who wants to learn about the value of YA literature.

    4. This is a great textbook to use in the class. It avoids adding information that doesn't add to its usefulness. The chapters are broken up in an orderly and clear manner and each chapter actually has useful information in it. I didn't feel like I was wasting time or reading a boring textbook while reading this book.

    5. The title is true - if you serve young adults and teens in the library, media center, or classroom environment, this title truly covers the "essentials" of the trade. Tomlinson and Lynch-Brown cover the most popular genres, and provide incredibly useful set of teacher strategies. Keep this one handy for day to day inspiration too.

    6. I found this book to be very insightful in providing a scope of different genres in young adult literature. I would find this book to be a great resource in defining and characterizing books of different genres in a classroom.

    7. It was a textbook that was necessary for my class. I generally don't find textbooks all that fun or interesting. This was not an exception. It had a few interesting things to say from time to time, but I was not riveted while reading it.

    8. One of the best text books I have read. It is filled with excellent suggests for reading in young adult genres, pointing the reader in the right directs for first hand experience.

    9. This book is very informative. After reading it, I definitely feel more prepared to teach young adult literature because I have been exposed to both the books themselves and this text.

    10. I found this book to be very informative and an easy read. A nice balance of information without an overwhelming amount of words or pages.

    11. This is an awesome book! The lists are great, the chapters are really helpful to future/current/experienced teachers alike.
