Desperate in Peoria (How Come Everything We Read Has to be So Depressing?).
Burns, Paula
English Journal, v74 n2 p76-77 Feb 1985
Suggests that real life can be depressing enough without subjecting teenagers to a steady diet of reading assignments whose content is largely negative. Laments that a search has turned up so few examples of "good" literature and asks for suggestions. (RBW)
