YA Roundup (3)
I’m still in the middle of moving, but thought I’d take a break to share a few interesting YA Lit-related links that have come across my desk in the last week or so.
- The Hunger Games vs. Twilight: Is Katniss Everdeen the antidote to Bella Swan?
- What I’ve learned about teenagers: The author of 11 novels for teenagers gives special insight on their world.
- “Yeah, I’m an EA Librarian.”: EA stands for Emerging Adult. Emily Brown muses on literature for those in their 20s, which is now starting to be recognized as “a discrete neurological stage in the development of human life.”
- YA Book Banned: A school in Stockton, MO has banned The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie from the curriculum and the school’s library.
