High/Low Handbook: Best Books and Web Sites for Reluctant Teen Readers, 4th Edition

Finding well-written and engaging material for teens with substandard reading ability can be a challenge. This handbook is designed to help, describing more than 500 of the best new titles for reluctant teen readers and serving as a wonderful readers' advisory and collection development tool. The book is completely new and reorganized since its previous edition and is divided into two major sections. The first offers a core collection of fiction and nonfiction high/low titles, organized into broad topical areas that appeal to teens, such as careers, exploration, sports, disasters, and teen cultures. The second part presents mainstream YA books and magazines that can be used to build and supplement the core collection. Web sites and graphic novels have been included in addition to the totally new selection of titles. Grades 6-12
