The recommended list of books—which cover everything from choosing a major to guidance for students with disabilities—is bound to spark ideas for a book display in the high school library or for topics to discuss with teens at the public library. The article’s author, Alicia Eames, freelance librarian, editor, and writer, and frequent contributor to SLJ’s Curriculum Connections, also includes links to the titles’ websites, which offer addition information that you’ll find helpful.
