I love that YALSA devotes an entire month to Teen Reading – it offers a great opportunity for going to schools and discussing book titles as well as some great homework help services offered by libraries (like Brainfuse’s daily one-on-one tutoring assistance as well as their Writing Lab, where students can do anything from getting help in organizing their paper to a complete review).
Because October was so busy, I really fell by the wayside with posting book reviews. I’m hoping to remedy that during November by posting a book review every couple of days.
