Carico, Kathleen M.
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, v44 n6 p510-18 Mar 2001
Investigates the possibilities that a reader response approach offered strong female characters to four middle school girls reading and talking about two young adult novels. Examines issues involved in negotiating meaning in such literature discussions, including real talk, "inappropriate" talk, preferences in group talk, and privileged talk. Notes directions for thought and research. (SR)
