Teen Titles is the book review magazine that is packed full of (very) honest and uncensored opinions of the latest books for teenagers, contributed by teenagers from Edinburgh and around the UK, as well as interviews with popular authors. In this issue students meet authors Sarah Govett, Geraldine McCaughrean, Danny Weston and Mary G Thompson.
Teen Titles 69
The magazine is produced by a team of Edinburgh School Librarians and the Publications Unit and is the only magazine of its kind in the UK, we think!
Sarah Govett author of The Territory was interviewed by students from Gracemount High.
Publishers send copies of their latest books for young adults to the Teen Titles editorial team, who read each book, write a short blurb, and then send on to each secondary school library in Edinburgh. Publishers and authors are not only very keen to get their books included, but are desperate to know what their readers genuinely think of them!

School librarians distribute these brand new books to their students and ask them to read and review the books. Librarians work hard to match up the right book to the right students, and students are encouraged to give their honest opinions about each title.

Students from every high school in the city get the opportunity to contribute, as do students from subscribing schools around the UK and the result is a magazine that honestly reflects what students think, making it a very valuable resource for students, authors and publishers alike!
