Popular Series Fiction for Middle School and Teen Readers
A Reading and Selection GuideBook - 2009
What book follows Philip Reeve's Larklight ? How many titles are in Jennifer Holm's Boston Jane series? Which fantasy series are suitable for grades 6 through 9? Are there good series featuring computers? These are just some of the questions that challenge middle and high school librarians as the popularity of series fiction continues to grow. Series are not always easy to manage. Many do not have a series title and the component volumes can be hard to identify. This updated and expanded edition gives librarians and their patrons a handy guide to the best and most popular series, making it easier to satisfy readers' desire to read all the books in a given series and then to find similar series to enjoy.
For each of the 700-plus series included, the authors provide an annotation that describes the series' appeal and key characteristics. Also included are the publisher, grade level, genre, and a numbered list of the titles in the series with publication dates. This reading guide and selection tool is an invaluable resource for anyone working in school and public libraries.
