Summary, etc.: A reference librarian with the Denver Public Library System, Bodart cites books that deal with edgy themes of interest to young adults, such as incest, teenage pregnancy, substance abuse, sexual and physical abuse, gangs, and suicide. After full bibliographic data, she considers subject areas, characters, booktalk (a commercial to interest teens in the book), major themes and ideas, book report ideas, risks, strengths, awards, and selected reviews.
