Although this was a textbook, the author was clearly grounded in up-to-date philosophy and resources in young adult literature and provided a lot of gap-filling for me in terms of genre. My reading list has grown exponentially, and I've made a goal to start a graphic novel/comics club at our school in order to reach those readers who currently don't have a niche. Chance is an author I would read again - this is a valuable resource for anyone who teaches or advises readers of young adult books.

This is actually a really pleasant read for a textbook, I enjoyed it. Not only did it have great explanations, but also great booklists and suggestions for programs.
Michelle
Great book so far - full of resources for finding books for YA and good clear definitions and explanations of book types.
