An indispensable reference for libraries, this book takes the guesswork out of crossover readers' advisory by allowing you to easily guide teens who enjoy reading adult books and adults who enjoy reading teen stories. Chapters written by genre experts will help you better understand each genre's appeal to teens and adults as well as list dozens of titles that lend themselves to both groups of readers. The approach will help you maximize your collection while better serving your patrons.

The work is divided into two parts: the first part covers adult books for teens, while the second section delves into teen books for adults. Chapters include a definition of the genre, appealing features unique to the category, the factors that make the works suitable for crossover, a listing of relevant titles and annotations, and trends on the horizon. Genres covered include urban fantasy, mainstream, historical fiction, graphic novels, and nonfiction.
