Young Adult Literature Roundtable

Many group members attended Middletown AAUW’s February 13, 2010, luncheon and heard Frances Yates, 2008 Educational Foundation Community Action Grant recepient, talk about young adult literature. We followed up by having each group member make a YA selection and share it at our February discussion. Here’s what we chose:

Annie on my Mind, by Nancy Garden

The Dive from Clausen’s Pier, by Ann Packer

Front and Center, by Catherine Gilbert Murdock

If I Stay, by Gayle Forman

Murder at Hollywood High, Murder at The Grove, and Murder at the Hollywood Historical Society, by Bruce Kimmel (Adriana Hofstetter mysteries)

Prairie Winter, by Bonnie Geisert

Stargirl, by Jerry Spinelli

The Usual Rules: A Novel, by Joyce Maynard
