About This Book
Young girls in the 5th though 8th grades are among the most rabid consumers of books. Their enthusiasm for and devotion to particular authors, series, and characters can only be compared to a crush. Like a secret diary, this journal encourages girls to record their innermost thoughts — but for books, not boys. Combining the smarts and savvy of Nancy Pearl with the fun of a MySpace page, Book Crush Journal allows girls to personalize, record, expand upon, and interact with books long after they've stopped reading. It goes far beyond the usual “my favorite” this’s and that’s — there's entries for the reader’s first book crush, current book crush, character they most want for a friend, authors they’d like to meet, favorite historic time and place, potential pen names, and lists of books that are really boring, despite what everyone else says. A wonderful gift for any young lady, the journal helps develop writing ability and critical thinking while fostering a love of reading.

    Hotel Angeline
    A Novel in 36 Voices
    Thirty-six of the most interesting writers in the Pacific Northwest came together for a week-long marathon of writing live on stage. The result? Hotel Angeline, a truly inventive novel that surprises at every turn of the page.   Something is amiss at the Hotel Angeline, a rickety former mortuary perched atop Capitol Hill in rain-soaked Seattle. Fourteen-year-old Alexis Austin is fixing the plumbing, the tea, and all the problems of the world, it seems, in her landlady mother’s absence. The quirky tenants—a hilarious mix of misfits and rabble-rousers from days gone by—rely on Alexis all the more when they discover a plot to sell the Hotel. Can Alexis save their home? Find her real father? Deal with her surrogate dad’s dicey past? Find true love? Perhaps only their feisty pet crow, Habib, truly knows. Provoking interesting questions about the creative process, this novel is by turns funny, scary, witty, suspenseful, beautiful, thrilling, and unexpected.

    The response to Nancy Pearl’s surprise bestseller Book Lust was astounding: the Seattle librarian even became the model for the now-famous Librarian Action Figure. Readers everywhere welcomed Pearl’s encyclopedic but discerning filter on books worth reading, and her Rule of 50 (give a book 50 pages before deciding whether to continue; but readers over 50 must read the same number of pages as their age) became a standard MO.

    A Guide to Mainstream Fiction, 1978-1998
    Recommending books to readers of contemporary mainstream, or literary, fiction is perhaps the most challenging of all endeavors for readers' advisors. Pearl and her co-authors attempt to ease the process with this helpful guide to the most elusive genre. Covering 1,000 novels, many of them award winners, the book organizes titles according to their major appeal characteristics (e.g., language, setting, story, and character) as delineated by Saricks and Brown in their standard text, Readers' Advisory Service in the Public Library, 2d ed.,</i> (ALA, 1997). For each book there is a plot summary, indications on the book's suitability for book discussion groups, and recommendations of similar titles. Awards are cited as well, and all titles mentioned are indexed by title, author, and subject. Describing some of the best literature published in the United States and abroad in recent years, this book is an essential guide for readers' advisors, and a helpful collection development tool.
