As Lev Grossman, book critic and author, writes, “young adult novels tend to be about young adults, and teenager-y things that most adults have long since put away. But statistically speaking, most adults were young adults at some point in their lives, and some of us are still processing that experience. Young adult novels can be as powerful as anything out there… Bottom line, there's one thing that young adult novels rarely are, and that's boring. They're built to grab your attention and hold it. And I'm not as young as I once was. At my age, I don't have time to be bored.” In this reading-intensive course, we will consider some of the pivotal moments and examples of the genre. While we will take Young Adult literature seriously, as literary and cultural scholars, we will not—as Grossman promises—be bored.
