Synopsis

After Harry Potter, then what? Understanding and keeping current with speculative fiction is key to helping teens find books they will enjoy, and to keeping them reading. This guide organizes by genre, subgenre, and theme some 1,400 titles of fantasy, science fiction and paranormal titles, most published within the last decade. Chapters cover such subgenres as epic fantasy, wizardry, romance, and mystery, which are further broken down by subgenres and themes. Annotations offer bibliographic information, brief plot summaries, reading levels, alternative media formats (including large print and Braille), and awards information. Author profiles, programming ideas, lists of The Finest in the Realm for each subgenre, and reproducible lists of Harry Potter read-alikes and Girl Power titles make this a versatile resource. Grades 6-12.
