This book was extremely helpful to me as I started my first book discussion group for teens at the library. It turned my nervousness into excitement and gave me so many terrific ideas that I don't think we will ever get bored in our new book club. I will definitely be purchasing it, but I can't decide if I want it for my own personal collection or as a permanent part of our reference desk collection
This is more about starting a book club. I thought it was going to be about how to make a pre-existing book club and incorporate things that will get your teens to become leaders. I got very little that's new out of this. I only gave it 2 stars because it seems like there's a bit of false advertising in the title.
This is an excellent resource for anyone looking to start a teen book club or even just looking for some fresh ideas. It contains a wealth of information on starting and organizing the group, planning meetings, choosing the type of group, guiding the teens in discussions, and much more!
