Never A Dull Moment: Body piercing? Extreme sports? Teen pregnancy?  Welcome to the action-packed world of hi/lo books

Never A Dull Moment: Body piercing? Extreme sports? Teen pregnancy?  Welcome to the action-packed world of hi/lo books | Young Adult Book Talk | Scoop.it

My heart’s desire is to turn reluctant readers into book sluts!” says Tori Jensen.

Jensen, a high school librarian from St. Paul, MN, isn’t out to corrupt kids. She’s simply trying to get them to read, especially those students who’d rather get sprayed by a skunk than curl up with a conventional tome. That’s why Jensen constantly booktalks hi/lo titles and uses them extensively with struggling readers. She also hand sells these turbocharged titles to every kid she can and reviews hi/lo books on Goodreads.com, a social networking site for readers.
