Radical reads 2 : working with the newest edgy titles for teens by Joni Richards Bodart( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the first Radical Reads, Joni Richards Bodart identified young adult books featuring gritty, complex plots, focused on multidimensional characters, and tackled such difficult and provocative issues as teenage pregnancy, dysfunctional families, gangs, prejudice, violence, and drugs. Here, she continues where the first book left off, examining more than a hundred titles published since the previous edition. The books featured here are engaging and tough, yet well-written and accessible to readers. For each novel, Bodart lists the main characters, major themes, and subject areas and offers a brief summary. In addition to providing book report ideas, she cites the strengths of each work, presents excerpts of important reviews, and lists awards the book has received.--From publisher description

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

They suck, they bite, they eat, they kill : the psychological meaning of supernatural monsters in young adult fiction by Joni Richards Bodart( Book )

5 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Teen readers have always been fascinated by monsters, but lately it seems like every other young adult (YA) book is about vampires, zombies, or werewolves. These works are controversial, since they look at aspects of life and human nature that adults prefer to keep hidden from teenagers. But this is also why they are so important: They provide a literal example of how ignoring life's hazards won't make them go away and demonstrate that ignorance of danger puts one at greater risk. In this book Joni Bodart examines six different monster -- vampires, shapeshifters, zombies, unicorns, angels, and demons -- in YA literature. Bodart first discusses the meaning of these monsters in cultures all over the world. Subsequent chapters explore their history and most important incarnations, comparing the same kind of creatures featured in different titles. This volume also contains interviews with authors who provide additional insight and information, and the bibliography includes a comprehensive list of titles featuring the various monsters
