Editorial Reviews

Review

Younger's superb overview of young adult books on body image and female sexuality in young adult literature has much to recommend it. . . . This guidebook to females in young adult literature is highly recommended. (American Reference Books Annual)

Drawing on a diverse set of texts spanning almost 70 years - including well-known classics, novels now out of print, and series fiction - she makes a compelling case for the cultural and developmental significance of this body of work.... The book makes a unique contribution in recognizing this vastly understudied field. (H.M. Bittel CHOICE, June 2010)

. . . An intriguing read and a fine addition to a professional library . . . (VOYA, December 2009)

Product Details


More About the Author

Beth Younger was born and raised in Southern California, where she frequently dreamed about being an author. She had a few uninspiring office jobs, including accounts payable at Aaron Spelling Productions, and then got sick of work that had little meaning to her. Remembering her life-long desire to teach and write, she realized what she had to do. She then returned to college where she earned her bachelor's degree in English in 1996. After moving to Baton Rouge to attend graduate school at LSU, Beth earned both a master's and Ph.D. and now teaches at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa, where she lives with her chihuahua Marcy Keeton Younger. Learning Curves is her first book.
