Reluctant Readers

Filed under: Adolescent Readers/Reading — scrollman @ 4:09 pm

YALSA (Young Adult Library Services Association) has a portion of their website listing suggested books for “reluctant readers.”  I’ve used this site in the past and it has informed my decisions on what books to buy for my school.  There are some pretty cool looking books on their top ten list.  Has anyone read these titles?  If so, which ones would you recommend?

  1. Jon, thanks for sharing. This is ALA’s new list for RReaders, yes.

    UNWIND is one of our lit circle options this semester…

    Ellen Hopkins is outrageously popular, even with my undergrads here, with her CRANK, BURNED, IMPULSE and now GLASS.

    The others are new to me but I’m going to check each of these top ten titles out. KES
