Books to Meet the Needs of Teen-Agers.
Carmichael, Carolyn W.
Teenagers are a unique group of people regarded with as little seriousness as possible by some and with intense seriousness by others. Many of their problems, concerns, and needs are reflected through and can be observed in books; among these are parent relationships, the search for a belief or purpose in life, the unknown, the bizarre and supernatural, the occult, religion, the Jesus revolution, self-expression, ethnic identity and human dignity, rock music, drugs, women's struggles, and sex. The youth of today don't hesitate to question values. Books are needed which are designed for young adult readers--books that can answer the many needs of today's teenagers. (Included are several book descriptions and a list of 95 "Books to Meet the Needs of Teenagers.") (HOD)
