Abstract:

"Presenting Young Adult Fantasy Fiction is the product of young adult librarian, critic, and editor Cathi Dunn MacRae's six-year working relationship with a group of teen readers called the Fantasy Fanatics. No other literary study features teen choices and opinions so prominently, actually quoting young people's evaluations of hundreds of books and authors." "Opening with a fascinating array of definitions by writers, critics, and teenagers, MacRae organizes this elusive genre into manageable categories. Each chapter traces the development of one subgenre, featuring a detailed biographical critique of a contemporary American fantasist within that category." "Librarians, educators, and other professionals who work with young adults and reading will find an inside track and a valuable reference guide to one of teens' most beloved genres. Both adult and teenaged fans of the literature, from the novice to the expert, will find Presenting Young Adult Fantasy Fiction a unique road map to their favorite imaginative territory."--Jacket.
