Most widely held works by Alleen Pace Nilsen
Literature for today's young adults by Kenneth L Donelson( Book )
41 editions published between 1980 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,708 libraries worldwide
With 140 fewer pages than the fourth edition, the fifth obviously has been tightened; it's partly in the format, with narrower margins and less white space. Otherwise, some text has been rephrased or rearranged and topics (for example, adolescent psychology) given shorter shrift. Coverage of Holocaust literature has been expanded, and discussion of problem novels improved. Sports books have been dumped in with humor, movies, and other stuff, including humorous poetry, which, it seems, the authors feel is the only kind teens read for pleasure; other types of poetry as well as short stories and drama are relegated to the English classroom, coverage of which has been enlarged. The chapter on sf and fantasy is good on historical aspects but weak on today's writers. A short list of Internet listserves and Web sites has been incorporated as part of using YA literature in the library. Once again, updating of appendixes seems spotty. Nevertheless, this is useful as a resource for youth librarians and a tool for teaching YA literature. Sally Estes

Names and naming in young adult literature by Alleen Pace Nilsen( Book )
6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 297 libraries worldwide
"Names and Naming in Young Adult Literature shows how authors of young adult literature use the creation of names for people, places, events, inventions, animals, and imaginary concepts as one of their most important literary techniques. Chapters address how authors use names to touch readers' emotions, reveal ethnic values and differences, create other worlds, and establish tone. Other chapters focus on authors' use of names to help readers remember who's who, such as J. K. Rowling in the Harry Potter series, or communicate separate messages to adults and young readers, as exemplified by Daniel Handler in the Lemony Snicket books."
