Don't be daunted by dystopia
With the recent release of the movie based on Alexandra Bracken's Darkest Minds trilogy, you might see a new surge of interest in dystopian fiction at your library.
Make the most out of that interest by reading the genre outline (search NoveList for "All About Dystopian Fiction for Teens" or "UI 440313"), setting up a read-alike display
, and talking with your teen patrons about dystopian fiction: Do they love it or hate it? Do they think it's played out, or eerily close to reality?
However they answer, you'll be ready with the right recommendation.
