Abstract:

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.
