Books for You: An Annotated Booklist for Senior High. Fourteenth Edition. NCTE Bibliography Series.
Beers, Kylene, Ed.; Lesesne, Teri S., Ed.
Beginning with a history of young adult literature and ending with a history of the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) "Books for You" booklist project, this fourteenth edition collection offers high school students, teachers, and librarians a comprehensive annotated list of more than a thousand books published between 1997 and 1999. Whether adventure, detailed how-to, helpful study guide for the SAT, historical account, biography, or fantasy, readers will find much to engage with and think about in the collection. In thematically arranged chapters, readers can explore through brief entries that include bibliographic information and informative summaries. Annotations in the book are grouped by subject into 33 thematic chapters, including "Adventures and Survival";"Animals, Pets, and the Natural World"; "Colleges"; "Family Relationships"; "Historical Fiction"; "Math and Science"; "Poetry"; "Science Fiction"; "Sports and Sports Stories"; and "Writers and Writing." The collection's author, title, and subject indexes will assist readers looking for a particular author, book, or topic, and the appendixes provide additional useful material including a list of award-winning books, URLs for publishing houses, and titles of multicultural books.
