Adolescence in Literature

Some of the most exciting publishing being done these days is in Adolescent/Young Adult fiction, as represented by the booklist below. Short stories and movies (Master Harold… and the Boys, and Osama) are part of the course as well. Short papers, quizzes, and a final are required.

Tentative Booklist:
Matt de la Pena, We Were Here
M.T. Anderson, Feed
Karen Hesse, Out of the Dust
Walter Dean Myers, Fallen Angels
Mark Haddon, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
Buchi Emecheta, The Slave Girl
