Compiled by Megan Schliesman
© 2012 Cooperative Children's Book Center

Think you can take privacy for granted? Think again. These books for older children and teens offer thought-provoking perspectives on a range of privacy issues facing individuals and society. They include titles rooted in history, those that reflect contemporary life, and others that depict a distant—or not too distant—future.
