Written for pre-service teachers, in-service teachers, and media specialists, this Young Adult Literature text provides a fresh and exciting experience for readers as it leads them to the newest and best offerings of literature available for adolescents today. The author’s own wide reading and uncanny ability to recognize what middle school students will and should read plays out in rich text sets and authentic classroom features designed to help teachers captivate both motivated and reluctant readers.
“The table of contents is remarkably complete and well conceived. I’m especially thrilled to see a strong emphasis on the underserved areas in YA, namely illustrated texts and graphic novels, drama, poetry and nonfiction.”
— Karen Coats, Illinois State University
