Young grownup literature, from The Outsiders to Harry Potter, has assisted in shaping the cultural panorama for teens possibly greater than the other type of consumable media within the 20th and twenty-first century. With the increase of mega blockbuster motion pictures in keeping with those books lately, the younger grownup style is being co-opted through curious grownup readers and via Hollywood manufacturers. notwithstanding, whereas the style could be getting extra readers than ever sooner than, younger grownup literature is still exclusionary and challenging: few titles function traditionally marginalized contributors, the books current heteronormative views, and gender stereotypes proceed to persist.

These complex, perverse works were envisioned by Hirst and actualized by myriad employees. It is this model that Frey has copied and inserted into the Young Adult book market. To begin with, Frey looked at the trends of the early part of the 21st century in YA book sales. Wizards and vampires were big.

Frey, attempting to jump ahead of the curve guessed the next trend would be … aliens..

Over my years as a teacher, I’ve made it a habit to read lots of YA books. I’ll admit it’s a fun genre to dive into (though getting glares when reading a book like Gossip Girl in public is always interesting). However, while I may have numerous ideas of books to point my students to, youth recommendations, in my eyes, always trump what a crotchety adult is going to say. If I can get students to recommend books to each other or get other teen-recommendations from sites like Figment it goes a long way toward building strong readers over time.

I was striving to create lifelong readers by hook or by crook. However, lifelong reading is dependent on a steady stream of books always being at the ready. Simply put, to be a lifelong reader also means to commit to being a lifelong consumer. In an urban community like my high school in South Central Los Angeles, this was even more apparent: the nearest public library closed a year after I began teaching. Two years later, due to remodeling and lack of funding to actually finish remodeling the high school library was closed for an entire academic year.
