As we know motivating teenagers to read can be difficult – especially in a world of digital distractions.
TRAC (Teenage Reading Action Campaign) are conducting research amongst teenagers into their reading habits, and pilot results show that the majority of 12-18 olds agree that it is difficult to find time to read during school term time, and just over half agree that it is difficult to find a book that really interests them.
To help parents, teachers and librarians recommend the right books for their teenagers, TRAC has published the first of a series of ‘top recommended reads’ . The first list, which are all books with a summer theme or setting, features explicit reading age and content tags, and can be accessed as a PDF and on the website.
