For future school and public children's librarians, this guide surveys young adult literature (for those ages 12 through 18) and gives suggested activities for promoting and using books in middle and high schools and public libraries. Chance (children's and young adult literature, Sam Jackson State U.) describes different genres (comic books, poetry, realistic fiction, fantastic fiction, and informational books, for instance), and gives recommended titles, including books from various cultures. A concluding chapter addresses intellectual freedom and the role of the librarian in facing complaints.
