Summary

A must-have resource for librarians, teachers, and parents on the popular and growing area of teen nonfiction--a genre now mandated by the Common Core Standards.

Reality Rules II: A Guide to Teen Nonfiction Reading Interests presents approximately 450 fresh nonfiction titles annotated and organized into genre areas to address the reading interests of today's teens, covering everything from adventure to history, sports, life stories, and how-to.

Authored by a member of the first committee for the YALSA Award for Excellence in Nonfiction for Young Adults, this essential guide will help librarians, teachers, and parents find appealing materials for readers interested in nonfiction. The book offers expert guidance on reading levels and provides a list of fiction readalikes at the end of each chapter. It also identifies award-winning books and spotlights titles that appeal to specific groups, such as adult books that teens will enjoy, and books that are ideal for reluctant readers.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "This companion volume to 2008's Reality Rules is a guide to teen nonfiction reading interests featuring books published since 2007. Divided into three major parts Nonfiction Genres, Life Stories, and Nonfiction Subject Interests the entries are gathered into thematic chapters ( True Crime, History, Science, Math, and the Environment ) and are arranged alphabetically by author and include bibliographic information, a detailed annotation, keywords reflecting topics in the book, and a notation of appropriate age groups. The guide includes quick picks for reluctant readers as well as popular paperbacks. At the end of each chapter is a section of books readers can consider starting with, followed by a list of fiction read-alikes (no bibliographic information is given for those books). Overall coverage is good, although some of the fiction suggestions may be lacking (The Book Thief, a 500-plus-page Printz Honor Book read, merits only a one-sentence annotation); there are a few misspelled book titles (John Green's The Fault in Our Stars is listed as The Fault is in Our Stars in both the text and the index); and there are some odd choices (a 37-page picture-book biography of Jim Henson doesn't seem to fit here). A list of Nonfiction Readers' Advisory Resources for YA Librarians, a bibliography, and two indexes (author/title and subject) conclude this resource for school and public librarians.--Harless, Carol Sue Copyright 2010 Booklist"
