Synopsis

This book provides librarians, educators, and parents with the information they need to recognize the different kinds of young adult fiction available for boys. These books can then be suggested to young men as aids in navigating adolescence, pleasure (or free reading assignment) reading, and tools to improve literacy. The annotated bibliographies are helpful to young adults looking for a good read.
