In this book, Rodríguez uses theories of critical literacy and culturally responsive teaching to argue that our schools, and our culture, need sustaining and inclusive young adult (YA) literature/s to meet the needs of culturally and linguistically diverse readers and all students. This book provides an outline for the study of literature through cultural and literary criticism, via essays that analyze selected YA literature (drama, fiction, nonfiction, and poetry) in four areas: scribal identities and the self-affirmation of adolescents; gender and sexualities; schooling and education of young adult characters; and teachers’ roles and influences in characters’ coming of age. Applying critical literacy theories and a youth studies lens, this book shines a light on the need for culturally sustaining and inclusive pedagogies to read adolescent worlds. Complementing these essays are critical conversations with seven key contemporary YA literature writers, adding biographical perspectives to further expand the critical scholarship and merits of YA literature.

When the “counter-canon” itself becomes canonized, it’s time to reload. This is the notion that animates New Border Voices, an anthology of recent and rarely seen writing by Borderlands artists from El Paso to Brownsville—and a hundred miles on either side. Challenging the assumption that borderlands writing is the privileged product of the 1970s and ’80s, the vibrant community represented in this collection offers tasty bits of regional fare that will appeal to a wide range of readers and students. Among the contributions are: Introduction A “Southern Renaissance” for Texas Letters —José E. Limón The Texas-Mexico Border: This Writer’s Sense of Place —Rolando Hinojosa-Smith The Rain Parade —Paul Pedroza

Aravind Adigas dritter Roman erzählt von zwei jungen Brüdern auf der Suche nach sich selbst, vom Sport als Aufstiegschance und gnadenlosem Wettbewerb, von jungen Talenten und alten Talentsuchern, von Liebe und Ausbeutung, von Leidenschaft und Gewalt. Manjunath Kumar ist vierzehn. Er weiß, dass er ein guter Kricketspieler ist, vielleicht sogar so gut wie sein älterer Bruder Radha. Er weiß, warum er seinen dominanten und sportbesessenen Vater fürchtet, seinen brillanten Bruder bewundert und von der Welt amerikanischer Serien sowie interessanter wissenschaftlicher Fakten fasziniert ist. Aber es gibt vieles, das er noch nicht weiß – über sich selbst und die Welt um ihn herum. Als er Radhas großen Rivalen kennenlernt, einen privilegierten Jungen voller Selbstvertrauen, beginnt sich für Manju alles auf den Kopf zu stellen und er muss Entscheidungen treffen, die seine Welt verändern. Suggestiv und sensibel, bissig und schwungvoll – ein neuer, eindrucksvoller Roman des indischen Bestsellerautors und Booker-Prize-Gewinners
