"As is evident by the title, Keane has packed a dense number of lists into the book, and their appeal is broad. The contents likely include selections for every type of reader and something for even the pickiest among them. This volume is a valuable addition for librarians looking to brush up their professional collection and can also serve as a browsable title for teens." - School Library Journal "Although the title says 'for Teens,' the lists included in this book contain something for all ages; elementary and even some adult/YA crossover titles are included. This is a useful resource for new librarians and may also be helpful to seasonal librarians." - Library Media Connection "This looks to be a very useful book that will be heavily used because it has the ability to save librarians and educators hours of creating book lists. It is definitely recommended to both school and public librarians and to teachers. Reading teachers will find it especially useful as it lists both grade levels and lexiles." - ARBA
