What Is Your Teen Reading This Summer?

I don't know about you - but I keep a close eye on what my kids watch on TV/Movies.
To preview Movies my kids want to watch I go to one of the following review websites:
Plugged In
Christian Spotlight on Entertainment

But, besides either trusting the back cover of a book or reading a book before my kids - I have no way to really tell if the book is appropriate/acceptable for my child to read. My kids tend to read more hours a day than they watch TV or movies and with two reading tween/teen books I just can not pre-read every book they want to read. So, another blogger lady and I started a website where parents can go and read reviews of books from the perspective of a Christian parent.

The last few reviews I posted are for:
Trion Rising
The A-List
The Clique

The favorite teen book I've read so far and one I highly recommend is:

I encourage you to take a look and cruise around Teen Lit Review - and find some great summer reading for your teens!

What a great idea! The more parents can be informed about what their kids are reading, the better!

I remember when I was teaching high school English (at a Christian school), parents wanted me to monitor what their children were reading, but yikes! no way I could keep up THAT reading load. :)
