The No. 1 book in the field, Literature for Today's Young Adults helps teachers learn how to motivate teenagers to become life-long readers and now features the voices of two new co-authors and ten of the authors' Ph.D. students in a thorough update of critical topics and ideas.

A comprehensive, reader-friendly introduction to young adult literature, this book provides a look at young adult literature framed within a literary, historical and social context. Using this guide, teachers see how to evaluate books of all genres, from poetry and non-fiction to fantasies, drama, the supernatural, adventure, sports, mysteries, science fiction, graphic novels and more.

Long respected as the leading textbook in university English departments, colleges of education and schools of library science, this new edition is even more accessible than its predecessors and includes a number of updated topics of interest to a variety of audiences:
  • Teachers of English, reading, social studies and ESL; and
  • Librarians, parents, counsellors and other group leaders.
The challenges of using young adult literature with English language learners is explored, while one new chapter deals with digital and other new literacies for teachers and librarians, and the final chapter focuses on the increasingly important topic of censorship.

This eBook is in ePDF format, which enables you to:
