Teen Reviewers

Posted by Kelly Czarnecki

I know this is a late post on conference sessions, but forgive me, I didn’t want to leave this out.

I attended a fantastic session on teens reviewing materials. The representation of speakers was fantastic-publishers, Linda Benson from VOYA (it was neat to see her in person!), and the panel of teen reviewers which worked with very passionate YA Galley Group Advisors Diane Tuccillo and Di Herald.

Some of the projects mentioned included:

Teens Top Ten and VOYA Teen Reviewers

A handout created by YALSA included the following links for ‘Where to Review Books?’
teenlit.com
flamingnet.com
teenink.com
smartgirl.org

I received my letter in the mail this week regarding the YA Galley project. Is your library participating? Any VOYA reviewers want to comment what it’s like to work with a teen reviewer?
