I chose this book as an aide in finding literature suitable for my Middle School Social Skills class. The author spent adequate time in reviewing various books and breaking down the major themes. She includes more titles at the end of each chapter.
I would recommend this book to the beginning teacher, who may be unfamiliar with parsing books for thematic material.
Her writing style is engaging yet informative, a trait that cannot be said of all literature written for the same subject. She provides enough detail and samples within each chapter so that the reader can be fairly confident of using the texts about which she writes and applying that learning to other adolescent novels.
Although the printing is relatively recent, I was unfamiliar with many of the titles she examines, and questioned whether some were still in print. Although Trupe provides more examples in her "Further Reading " sections at the end of each chapter, the list is not extensive, and many of the same titles are recycled for other portions of the book, reducing a teacher's list of possible choices.
