Book Review: Sex, Brains & Video Games: Information and Inspiration for Youth Services Librarians, 2nd ed.

Leanne Cheek


In this book, Jennifer Burek Pierce focuses on many aspects of young adult development, from their mental and emotional processes to the many influences that affect them in their day-to-day lives. She asserts the importance of making a place for this unique group in libraries’ spaces, programs, and staff, noting that adolescence is an incredibly difficult transitional period and that, in the words of Sari Feldman, libraries “are a lifeline for people at every key transition in their lives” (xii). This book does not contain step-by-step guides for serving this age group, but it presents clear reasoning for how to approach this age group and describes what a librarian might experience while working with today’s teens.
