The book report is due and panic sets in. A THIN book is the ticket. But perhaps a THINNER book? Or the THINNEST book of all? And how to pick one (quickly) that will be interesting? Students, teachers, and librarians will love this handy little volume that describes 100 titles recommended for middle and high school students. Readable, attention-grabbing all are less than 200 pages. Each entry lists title and author, provides information on characters, plot, and action, and even suggests topics to cover in a book report. Librarians and teachers will appreciate the inclusion of curricular areas and readability indexes, and students will find the appendix on approaches to writing a book report or booktalk a real gold mine. Five indexes make locating the perfect title a breeze.The genre index guides you to the kind of book you want to read. The subject index lists dozens of subjects, from adoption to writing, divorce to time travel. The readability index guides you to the "quick reads" or "thoughtful novels." If you have a favorite author or already know of a novel you want to read, there is the author or title index. Finally, the curriculum index allows you to look for a book for a particular class."
