• Description : #1 New York Times bestseller! Goodreads Choice Award for the best young adult novel of the year! In this sequel to the acclaimed Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda—now a major motion picture, Love, Simon—we follow Simon’s BFF Leah as she grapples with changing friendships, first love, and senior year angst. When it comes to drumming, Leah Burke is usually on beat—but real life isn’t always so rhythmic. She’s an anomaly in her friend group: the only child of a young, single mom, and her life is decidedly less privileged. She loves to draw but is too self-conscious to show it. And even though her mom knows she’s bisexual, she hasn’t mustered the courage to tell her friends—not even her openly gay BFF, Simon. So Leah really doesn’t know what to do when her rock-solid friend group starts to fracture in unexpected ways. With prom and college on the horizon, tensions are running high. It’s hard for Leah to strike the right note while the people she loves are fighting—especially when she realizes she might love one of them more than she ever intended.

• Description : Of the many themes occurring in young adult literature, one that bears more extensive exploration is the adolescent-animal connection. Although substantial critical commentary has addressed children's animal stories and animals in adult fiction, very few studies have been devoted to adolescent-animal encounters. In Animals in Young Adult Fiction, Walter Hogan examines several hundred novels and stories to explore the ways in which animals are represented in these works. In additional to providing an historical survey, Hogan looks at both realistic fiction and speculative works, including fantasy, supernatural, horror, and science fiction. Hogan reviews stories that feature wild animal encounters, stories centered on relationships with horses, dogs, and other working and performing animals, and those featuring relationships with pets. Drawing upon established scholarship, this book examines human-animal relationships from multiple angles, making it an invaluable resource for librarians, teachers, and students of children's and young adult literature.

• Description :  Young adult literature featuring teenage lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning characters is fast growing in popularity. Unlike the “problem novels” of the past, which focused on the guilt, bullying and isolation of LGBTQ characters, today’s narratives present more sympathetic and celebratory portrayals. The author explores a selection of recent novels—many of which may be new to readers—and places them in the wider contexts of LGBTQ literature and history. Chapters discuss a range of topics, including the relationship of Queer Theory to literature, LGBTQ families, and recent trends in utopian and dystopian science fiction.

• Description : This book examines ‘diversity’, or the lack thereof, in young adult fiction (YA) publishing. It focuses on cultural hegemony in the United Kingdom and explores how literary culture aimed at young adults reproduces and perpetuates ‘racial’ and ethnic cultural hierarchies. Diversity is described by the We Need Diverse Books project as ‘all diverse experiences, including (but not limited to) LGBTQIA, Native, people of color, gender diversity, people with disabilities, and ethnic, cultural, and religious minorities’. This study focuses on people of colour. While previous studies have looked at the representation of ethnic minorities in books for children and young adults, this book examines the experiences of ‘own voice’ cultural producers that create a counter-narrative. Specifically, this book will investigate the output and experiences of British young adult fiction authors of colour (BAME authors) published in the UK during the period 2006-2016, drawing upon semi-structured interviews with a sample of authors.

• Description : "In the early years of the twenty-first century gay-themed Young Adult (YA) literature is moving from being an isolated subgenre to becoming a more integrated part of this field of writing. Even though there is now more visible support for gay adolescents than previously, coming to terms with an emerging gay sexuality and deciding whether or not to declare that sexuality publicly, with the inherent risk of marginalisationand loss of family and friends, remain central to current YA fiction. For boys, the path to manhoodcan be a journey fraught with challenges, but it is even more so for gay boys who must contend with the forces of "hegemonic" (heterosexual) masculinities and the pressures to "do boy" according to socially-sanctioned rules and norms. This study, entitled Same sex desire in young adult fiction : subverting hegemonic masculinities, examines the ways male same-sex desire is treated in a selection of YA fiction. In each of the eight novels examined in the study, a first-person narrator explores his emerging same-sex desire in the contexts of home and school, family and friends. Each young man faces different challenges on his road to manhood, with some making the journey more successfully than others. The central concept underlying the development of of the theoretical framework is the issue of power, which is a recurring theme in adolescent literature. I draw on aspects of the works of three theorists - Michel Foucault, Judith Butler and Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick, in constructing the framework. Key constructs include: power, sexuality and heterotopias (Foucault); desire, sexuality and performability (Butler); and homosocial desire and the "closet" (Sedgwick). The analysis chapters utilise a methodology that draws on queer theory, queer discourse and literary theory. This approach offers ways for examining the texts according to how competing discourses of desire create tensions in the text; the ways hegemonic masculinity works to suppress same-sex desire; the effect of counter-hegemonic discourses; and the subject positions the texts offer readers. The study concludes with a reflection on the power networks that adolescents must grapple with in order to achieve agency and subjectivity in a heteronormative environment. Although the focus texts highlight the difficulties and dangers confronting gay youth, these challenges are located externally to the protagonists rather than suggesting that to be gay constitutes an inherent flaw. However, more needs to be done to advance the cause of recognition for gay youth. YA literature needs to be more inclusive, offering a better reflection of the complexities of the real world to ensure all young readers might see their faces reflected in it. This study is one step towards opening up this rich field of study. [...] by Publisher : 'no defined'

• Description : Technology and Identity in Young Adult Fiction is not a historical study or a survey of narrative plots, but takes a more conceptual approach that engages with the central ideas of posthumanism: the fragmented nature of posthuman identity, the concept of agency as distributed and collective and the role of embodiment in understandings of selfhood.
