School Library Journal just posted a nice round-up of nonfiction for teen readers that Junior Library Guild has had on their radar, including our own Mountains Beyond Mountains: The Quest of Dr. Paul Farmer, a Man Who Would Cure the World.

If the title or premise sounds familiar to you, it’s likely because Tracy Kidder’s Mountains Beyond Mountains was originally released as an adult book.
