"Cybils judges are trying for books with kid appeal. They do want books with literary merit, but they must also believe that the books will appeal to kids. But the big reason you can turn to the Cybils for Readers Advisory is because of the nature of the Finalists... The panelists... are looking to build a list of outstanding books in that particular genre for the past year...they work for variety in terms of appeal, theme, protagonists, gender, and so on."

"All Night Long isn’t code for Lionel Richie but instead a list populated by titles whose narrative arcs are condensed into a single day and/or night. Quite a task for the author to do well but these following titles show how to achieve just that."

"A website featuring out of the ordinary booklists for teens, written by Jennifer Hubert (that’s me!) and designed by Andrew Mutch that has been an online presence since 1998. In May 2007, Andrew transformed the original website into an interactive blog, where teens can not only respond to my reviews but write their own. Reading Rants also exists as a book for adult professionals who work with teens."

"One of our goals each month is to inspire you to read --- and to keep reading. We have found that required reading lists for school  --- are not exactly inspiring. Thus we have created what we think is the Ultimate Teen Reading List --- close to 400 titles that we believe are perfect choices for reading and discussing. We compiled entries from Teenreads.com readers who weighed in with their selections, and we also asked our staffers for suggestions. Titles range from young adult books to adult books that we think would be enjoyed by teens."
