Summary

Making the job of encouraging adolescents to read for pleasure less of a challenge, this book presents an annotated list of 95 books chosen by adolescents themselves as part of an annual program sponsored by the International Reading Association. Entries in the book are grouped by type or genre of publication to make books of a particular interest easy to find. Both fiction and nonfiction books can be found in the categories of history, health, sports, mystery and crime, family life, adventure, and personal growth. Romance and friendship, science fiction, and fantasy and the supernatural round out the fiction books; the nonfiction books include biographies and nature and ecology. A supplemental section of the book presents adaptations of previously published articles that focus on motivating teens to read for pleasure and enjoyment: "The Reader's Bill of Rights" (Daniel Pennac); "A 'Fiver' for a Book" (Bobbi Swiderek); "Free Choice Reading? Are You Kidding?" (Mary Jo Sherman); and "Encouraging the Lifetime Reading Habit" (Joseph Sanacore). (RS)
