Developmental Junctions of Text and Experience in Young Adult Literature.
O'Quinn, Elaine J.
ALAN Review, v27 n1 p60-63 Fall 1999
Presents an essay review of "Conflict and Connection: The Psychology of Young Adult Literature" by Sharon A. Stringer. Considers how teens are victims of a culture that superficially embraces what their youth represents in image, but abandons them in what their age requires in substance. Discusses how Stringer's book suggests a way to provide this much needed substance. (SC)
