I need to go back and read some of the chapters more deeply. The following chapters look like they could be very helpful in the future:
Chapter 3-Revamping Library Services to Meet Urban Teens' Everyday Life Information Needs and Preferences

Chapter 5-Street Lit Before You Can Recommend It, You Have to Understand It
Chapter 7-Urband Teens and Their Use of Public Libraries
Chapter 10-Youth Development and Evaluation: Lessons from "Public Libraries as Partners in Youth Development"
Chapter 12-Before it

Massive shout out to Denise Agosto and Sandra Hughes-Hassell - two awesome ladies who have devoted their careers to researching the information needs of urban, inner-city youth. If you are a professional librarian, educator, or social-worker who works closely with this population, this is arguably the best current resource available on the topic. Table posting your latest Goodreads review for a couple minutes and go order this book!

Recommended to Rebecca by: Unofficially recommended by Beck, Amy and Michele, since they wrote one of the chapters
Another small step toward cultural competency.

Good review of currently YA lit, especially lit for urban African American and Hispanic youth. Includes information about making library services relevant to the lives of urban teenagers.
