September 16, 2021


Dr Whisken explores the role Young Adult (YA) literature plays in the worlds of teenagers, and more particularly, what roles it might play in their lives in times of crisis. This article presents the views of seven teacher librarians in response to questions about YA literature, the roles it might play and whether it should have a message or purpose.
