500 Great Books for Teens, Anita Silva

Not sure what to read? Looking for something great? This book will help you find it, for any genre. It lists 500 good books and gives a brief summary. I liked that it was arranged by genre, so if you're looking for a specific type of book, you can just flip to that section. And it's helpful to see how many of the books she's listed you've already read. I've read 100/500 of the books listed so far. So that's 20%. Not bad. It gives you plenty of information about each book: when it was published, the number of pages, and recommended age range. Also, at the end of the book, there are "additional titles of interest," books arranged by geographic location, and by historical time. This was a great feature of the book; the different ways the books suggested were organized.

One thing that was annoying about the book was that it had a lot of spoilers. I mean, A LOT OF SPOILERS.
