Teaching Young Adult Literature Today introduces the reader to what is current and relevant in the plethora of good books available for adolescents. More importantly, literary experts illustrate how teachers everywhere can help their students become lifelong readers by simply introducing them to great reads smart, insightful, and engaging books that are specifically written for adolescents. Hayn, Kaplan, and their contributors address a wide range of topics: how to avoid common obstacles to using YAL; selecting quality YAL for classrooms while balancing these with curriculum requirements; engaging disenfranchised readers; pairing YAL with technology as an innovative way to teach curriculum standards across all content areas. Contributors also discuss more theoretical subjects, such as the absence of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) young adult literature in secondary classrooms; and contemporary YAL that responds to the changing expectations of digital generation readers who want to blur the boundaries between page and screen."

Throughout history, the verse novel has persisted as a modest but noteworthy literary subgenre, from classic works like Eugene Onegin to contemporary volumes by Vikram Seth, Dorothy Porter, and Derek Walcott. In particular, the verse novel has emerged as a popular form for young adult readers, such as the Newbery Medal winner Out of the Dust by Karen Hesse. As this unique form continues to flourish, it merits closer examination. In The Verse Novel in Young Adult Literature, Brenna Friesner explores both the history and current use of the verse novel in teen fiction. Examining more than 220 titles written over the last few decades, Friesner discusses the verse novel’s evolution, analyzes key works, and considers how these novels can grapple with content that distinguishes them from traditional fiction. Though this study includes volumes written throughout history, its focus on contemporary novels further demonstrates the form’s relevance for today’s teens. By explaining its current popularity, this book acknowledges the verse novel’s potential to provide accessible, authentic stories for young adults to enjoy. The Verse Novel in Young Adult Literature will be of interest to librarians and teachers, as well as anyone wanting to learn more about this burgeoning aspect of young adult literature.

Here's the diary of a soul who finally found courage to express the truths that must be told. Conveying the ways in which filth trickled by and eroded every piece of humanity left inside. Here's a challenge to the world in all the atrocities it must hide. The forbidden challenge against actions speaking louder than words, here's the voices that haven't been heard. No more lies that must be told, no more anguish left to hold. Here's an opportunity to lift the weight of the world off your back, a first and forlorn possibility to attack. In acknowledgment that truths are filtered thoroughly, let's not be blind to all the carnage that we see, and finally be able to know that this chaos that'll be, is that the chaos surrounding our souls inevitably. Hear the truths in all its lies, take note and hear them through your hearts avertable demise.

This book is a collection of poems about the words we say and the words left unsaid. The things we control and the things we don't. The secrets we keep hidden away behind the mask and the statements we wear boldly on our sleeve. The actions we take without thought and the acts of others that affect us all. What we bring to the table is ultimately what consumes us. For good or ill, we live our lives; and our existence, like gravity, affects those around us in ways we cannot readily measure.

Harvest of the late season, yes indeed it is. All my working life— ever since my days with the Times of India group of publications where I worked in the Economic Times during mid sixties— I only wrote analytical stuff for the newspaper. Later when I shifted to management from journalism, and then through change of jobs this continued. When I retired, some of the periodicals requested me to continue to contribute articles regularly, which I initially thought, why not, but was not sure, for I had also decided to do something different from what I did all working life. Yet, I was toying with the idea of continuing to write something. Only, that something was not spelt out, nor was I clear as to what. Soon, this something turned out to be poetry and poetic translation of ancient Sanskrit texts. Harvest of the Late Season is the first book on poetry presented to readers.
