Editorial Reviews

Review

"This compelling, scholarly, and rich analysis encourages the use of both fiction and nonfiction to help students understand issues they, or their peers, may be facing. The introduction is a powerful, well-documented profile of today's teen.... The extensive literary analyses, which cover classic titles but more frequently contemporary ones, are effectively presented and well supported by a question-and-answer section addressing how the literature can help a struggling teen. Librarians, classroom teachers, and counselors will find elements of this book helpful in reaching at-risk youth when direct personal intervention is simply not enough."-Booklist/Reference Books Bulletin
