CONNECTIONS... this revision includes more ways for teachers to connect with their adolescent students, and help them connect with good literature.

The second edition of Young Adult Literature: Exploration, Evaluation, and Appreciation is comprehensive enough to ensure pre-service and practicing teachers an understanding of literature that will interest and engage today’s adolescents, yet remains slim enough to provide teachers an opportunity to read the rich literature now available for teens and pre-teens.  This text stresses the need to connect adolescents with high quality and valued titles in every genre but also points out the burgeoning literature of graphic novels, comic books, and nontraditional titles on horror and humor that motivate young readers.   New to this edition are teaching ideas that explore multiple readings to connect to new contexts as teachers engage students in an array of contemporary books.
