The Seeking of Self: Voices of the Abandoned in the Work of Brock Cole.
Smith, S. Scot
ALAN Review, v27 n1 p55-59 Fall 1999
Presents three young adult novels by Brock Cole discussing a phenomenological quest for self-identity that breaks the traditional pattern often found in young adult literature. Discusses the novels "The Goats" (1987), "Celine" (1989), and "The Facts Speak for Themselves" (1997) where adolescents show strength, responsibility, and maturity, and adults are depicted as egocentric, immature, indifferent, and otherwise seriously flawed.
