Book Crush: For Kids and Teens—Recommended Reading for Every Mood, Moment, and Interest – Nancy Pearl

Here’s a great reference book on various genres for various young age groups by America’s most famous librarian (only slightly more famous than its most famous janitor). I bought this book after listening to a lecture by Pearl and wanted to see what she included and why. The book is a little disappointing since it is mainly listing works with little to no explanations on why they are included (just take her word on it that the book is good). Part of the fun is finding works that I have and still read as it validates my reading choices and taste, which make it all the harder when books I love are omitted and others I hate are included.
