- Flamingnet At Flamingnet, a father and son team from Baltimore manage a team of student reviewers that read current books and prepubs (books that are not out yet) for preteens and teens. Books are rated on a scale from 1 to 10, and some are given a smiley face content rating. Click the What's this? link below the yellow smiley faces to learn what the different ratings mean. The site also has a civil war section (wish they explained why), and a bulletin board for posting comments on any of the reviewed books. (STN)
- Reader's Club: Teen Corner The Public Library of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County has created a whopper of a guide to enjoyable books. The reviews are organized (as librarians are prone to do) into twenty-two categories such as Action/Adventure or Humor/Satire. Highlights of the site are Celebrity Book Reviews, a form to submit your own 100-word book review, author interviews, and a personal reading log (requires free registration). After all this, if you are still stumped about what to read next, the nice librarians will send you a few personal recommendations if you tell them what books and authors you like (click on What to Read.) (STN)
- Teen Ink: Books Teen Ink is a website and print magazine devoted entirely to teenage writing and art. Their book reviews section contains more than 600 reviews written by teens. Unfortunately they are only browse-able in reverse chronological order, or alphabetically, so it is impossible to peruse a specific genre. Best click is the form to submit your own reviews. In addition to books, Teen Ink accepts movie, music and college reviews. (STN)
