Your Reading: An Annotated Booklist for Middle School and Junior High, 1995-96 Edition. NCTE Bibliography Series.
Samuels, Barbara G., Ed.; Beers, G. Kylene, Ed.
Designed for use by junior high and middle school students, this annotated bibliography of over 1,100 titles of fiction and nonfiction also serves as a resource for teachers, librarians, and parents in search of titles that might catch the attention of such students. The bibliography presents annotations of books published or reissued in 1993 and 1994. Each entry contains the author, title, name of publisher, publication date, length of book, ISBN number, 7-8-line synopsis of the book. Titles are grouped by subject matter under 7 sections: (1) Growing Up; (2) Imagined Lands; (3) Shudder and Shake!; (4) People, Problems, and Places: Yesterday and Today; (5) Science All around You; (6) Words To Remember; and (7) Facts, Figures, and Fun. In addition to a directory of publishers, and author, title, and subject indexes, the bibliography includes 2 appendixes--a 100-item list of the most notable books published between 1967 and 1992 of young adult literature; and a list of the books included in the annotated list which have won awards.
