Product Description

What sort of books connect with the younger generation today? There are the classics, of course, but there's also a wealth of newer books specifically targeting the Young Adult audience. "Books that Don't Bore 'Em" recommends authors who have written characters & plots students can identify with, that don't feature a challenging vocabulary, and that could potentially become a bridge to "classic" literature. The first half of the book is informative; it features books arranged by theme, a thorough introduction to the genre, how to teach it, and how to pick "winners" for your particular students; the second half includes interviews, short biographies, and recommended works from 32 top YA authors, including Laurie Halse Anderson, Joan Bauer, Sharon Creech, Chris Crowe, Louis Sachar, and others. 272 pages, indexed, softcover.

Please note that this book is written from neither a Christian, nor a conservative, perspective, and thus advocates and recommends specific books that show gender/sexual identity issues, physical/sexual abuse, mental illness, and other controversial topics.
