Welcome to the YA Lit Review! Here you will find my personal reviews for the Young Adult books that I have read during my time in the Master’s of Library and Information Science program at the University of South Florida. I am greatly interested in Youth Services and hope to work in this capacity someday. This website was designed for my Web Design for Libraries class, but I thought it would be an excellent opportunity to share some of the excellent (and the not-so-excellent) books that I’ve read throughout the program.
Reviews are categorized as tween books, which are appropriate for slightly younger readers, and true YA. Young Adult literature is among the fastest growing book genre in popularity. It is my personal philosophy that the reason for its high quality is because, as a society, we tend to care more about what our children and young people are reading than our adults. I hope that through my reviews and the ensuing discussion you come to feel similarly positive toward these works of art.
