YALSA-bk is a listserv with lively discussions among librarians, educators, and beyond about all things YA lit. Sometimes one listserv member will ask for help finding books around a certain theme or readalikes for a particular title. This post is a compilation of responses for one such request.
The original request
Does anyone have any recommendations for nonfiction titles for teens on environmental awareness/”going green”? So far I have Girls Gone Green and Generation Green, but I’d appreciate any other suggestions.
