Review: Reading Their World: The Young Adult Novel in the Classroom

User Review  - J. - Goodreads

Though not necessarily marketed that way, this is not a bad introductory textbook of readings to help those in the education field understand and utilize YA books. Especially good for teachers K-12 who have not already had a course on the subject. Read full review
