If it hasn't been reviewed on Kiss the Book, I will go to Follett and read
all of the reviews that they have assembled.  I read for key words like
"authentic language" "gritty"  "realistic action" - things that indicate
that there is probably swearing, drinking and other things in the book.  I
try to read at least 4 reviews for these books to get an overall picture of
the book.  I like the School Library Journal, Library Connection, and then
Kirkus in terms of which ones are the most useful for me when it comes to
unfamiliar books.
