Reaching Those Resistant Readers | Fun, Fast-Paced Fiction | Digital Classrooms in Australia | Scoop.it

"The books listed here will ... feature clear narratives that quickly draw readers into the action and are supported by snappy dialogue that helps move the stories along. Add to that appealing protagonists, attractive covers, and layouts that feature generous print size and plenty of white space, and bingo, you have something to hand to the hard-to-please. A few series titles and sequels are included to keep them reading once they’re hooked."
