Reader's Advisory

Dear parents,

Please keep abreast of your child's reading.  You are the best judge of your child's sophistication level.  The young adult designation for fiction covers a wide age range, approximately from eleven to twenty years of age.  Today's teenage realistic fiction is, in fact, a realistic portrayal of today's society.  In addition, librarians rely on reviews to gauge appropriateness.  The opinions of those who review books may not mirror your views.  If the content of a book offends your child or you, please return it to the library. Please review the Middle School Permission letter.
