Ice Cream/I Scream for YA Books
Gallo, Don
Voices from the Middle, v17 n4 p8-14 May 2010
From a 40-year perspective, Don Gallo examines the field of young adult literature, comparing it to ice cream--its various flavors and levels of richness. The article proclaims the profundity of the field and the quality of its writers, summarizes historical highlights, defends it against its detractors, and explains the importance of helping students make informed choices by talking about books and having them available in our classrooms. The author also states his personal preferences along with his concern about the increasing length of YA books.
