TriState Young Adult Review Committee



Books of Note is the title of this list. For a book to be included in this list it must be read and recommended as a notable book by an individual reader. Then a second evaluator must also agree that the book qualifies for the booklist. The list itself is not a be-all end-all because there are many good books that do not come through our channel. It is not meant to be a book list of exclusion, merely a listing to be shared with professionals or interested educators, etc. that would like to have some guidelines in choosing materials for school students and curricula.

The format of the list is quite simple. The basic entry includes: level (elementary, middle, high school), author, title, copyright, publisher, ISBN #, price, pages, and reviewer's code, brief summary of book.
