The teenaged library can be a trial, to which many librarians can attest. This book gives them strong reminders of what is happening to them developmentally that might help librarians in dealing with this age bracket. The first chapter should be required reading for all library staff members. The booktalking chapter will be helpful to anyone needing encouragement for school visits. Few libraries could go wrong with purchasing this highly recommended title for youth and teen librarians' professional collections.
