Description: This examination of the literary and pedagogical effectiveness of young adult literature from a critical, research-oriented perspective answers the nagging questions many teachers and scholars in the field are confronted with: Does young adult literature stand up on its own as literature? Is it worthy of close study? The treatment is both conceptual and pragmatic. Each chapter discusses a topical text set of YA novels in a conceptual framework—how these novels contribute to or deconstruct conventional wisdom about adolescent identity formation, while also providing a springboard in secondary and college classrooms for critical discussion of these novels. Uncloaking many of the issues that have been essentially invisible in discussions of YA literature, these questions can then guide the design of curriculum through which adolescent readers hone the necessary skills to unpack the ideologies embedded in YA narratives. Discussion questions at the end of each chapter both stimulate classroom conversation and tie the essays together. The annotated bibliography provides supplementary articles and books germane to all the issues discussed.
