Summary

Pre- and in-service teachers get what they need to connect with adolescent students—and to help them connect with good literature—in this engaging, balanced look at the world of young adult literature. Here readers get foundational knowledge combined with a look at the pathways leading to the literature itself, to begin to open the door to exploring young adult literature. Brief enough to give readers the opportunity to read the books themselves, yet comprehensive enough to ensure that teachers truly understand adolescents, their literature, and how to connect the two, Young Adult Literature by Bucher and Hinton provides what’s needed to ensure a rich educational experience for adolescents, while nourishing their love of reading.
