We wish summer reading would make everyone giddy and running toward libraries. Not so for all the teens dragging themselves or being dragged by someone into the library, so try…… YALSA Quick Picks for Reluctant Young Adult Readers. “Reluctant” is the perfect description. The YALSA Quick Picks list can be found in our wonderful database for readers, Novelist. If you haven’t tried Novelist, give it a go!  It’s full of fiction book information for all ages, and has reviews, reading guides, book lists, book talks, it’s simply great.

You can get to Novelist through (You’ll need your library card when logging in remotely) Then in the Keyword search box, start typing “reluctant” and you’ll see the YALSA Quick Picks appear in the drop down list And check out this link to a previous Virtual Lexicon post about how to use Novelist for book discussion guides. The Novelist K-8 database is also available and has the same great content.

Please post your comments on books for reluctant teens, Novelist, whatever!
