Between the Cracks: Finding a Place for Young Adult Literature.
Savage, Deborah
Teaching and Learning Literature with Children and Young Adults, v6 n3 p79-87 Jan-Feb 1997
Finds a pervasive resistance at literary institutions to accepting young adult literature as a valid, respected literary form. Examines what constitutes "good writing." Feels that young people will be shortchanged if they only read writing that is considered inferior to what an educated adult considers "literature." States that young people's literature shows the changing class structures of society. (PA)
