Young Adult Nonfiction @ Pearl

We know you love teen materials at CMRLS because of all of our awesome and up-to-date YA fiction: the thrillers, the mysteries, the dystopias, the contemps.

But we also know that you're in school and that you have to write papers, do projects, and finish homework. We also know that sometimes, you're just interested in stuff. Here at Pearl, we've recently gotten in a whole lot of new nonfiction books. These are great sources for your research papers, they'll provide information for your essays, and they're more reliable than Wikipedia (we know your teachers limit those internet sources!)! We also have new books on the most up-to-date world events and issues, like the Gulf Oil Spill and the Haiti Earthquake. We have several new biographies, and also some books about US history, with topics like the Orphan Train and US Involvement and Vietnam. These books are located on the nonfiction wall of the Teen Center. Ask at any desk for help!

Here's a complete list of our newest YA nonfiction titles. Quick to request! And as always, if you feel that we're missing something (a specific title or information on any topic) in our collection, let us know!
