"Literature for Today's Young Adults Gets Better and Better,.".

Written with the belief that students will have a better chance of becoming life-long readers if they have choices in what they read and if they enjoy it, renowned authors Alleen Nilsen and Ken Donelson offer a comprehensive, reader-friendly introduction to young adult literature framed within a rich literary, historical, and social context.

Ken Donelson and Alleen Nilsen have a long history of working to promote reading by young adults.

Although Dr. Donelson retired from ASU in 2002, they continue to work together to make this seventh edition as updated, and as comprehensive and readable as its predecessors.
