Book Description

30 April 2004 Genreflecting Advisory Series
Crushes, flirting, infatuation, first love, budding sexuality-romance, and all the angst that goes with it, is the number one preoccupation of the teen years. Publishers of YA fiction are well aware of this. In fact it is hard to find a YA novel that doesn't contain at least a touch of romance. But the teen romance differs substantially from adult romance fiction, and in this genre it is often difficult to match teens with the right books. How do you find the right romance for your teen readers? Carpan identifies more than 500 stories of love and romance that are in print or commonly available in libraries; and organizes them according to teen reader preferences-from humorous and historical romance, to issues romance, paranormal, and romantic suspense. After a brief plot summary, the author notes important appeal features of the books, such as a fast-paced story, a charming protagonist, or an evocative setting. In addition she provides information about award winners and series, research materials, and a list for a core collection. You'll even find profiles of some of your favorite YA romance authors in this guide. Readers' advisors who work with teens will find this book invaluable; and teen readers may also enjoy using the guide. Grades 5-12
