Literature for the Adolescent Reader--An Explosion of Reality.
Carmichael, Carolyn W.
Realism is a continuing trend in adolescent literature. Sixteen new books for teenagers--one nonfiction book about death; five novels dealing with the themes of parents' divorce and remarriage, self-identity, old age, and passive acceptance of life; two "how-to" books on fishing and candlemaking; and eight anthologies of poetry dealing with realistic themes--can help teachers fulfill their responsibility to help students understand reality.
