Synopsis: A critical introduction to the life and work of the young adult novelist M. E. Kerr.
From School Library Journal:
Grade 8 Up?Two volumes that will provide insights into the lives and works of two popular authors. Nilsen first looks at Kerr's development as a writer and its origins in her youth as Kerr herself described in Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Not a Novel (HarperCollins, 1983), then discusses her five most acclaimed books, as well as the remaining body of her work. She focuses on Kerr's thematic use of humor, names, style, and defense of the underdog. This revision of the 1986 edition includes an examination of the impact of Kerr's homosexuality on her works since she has explored these issues more openly with young people in the decade following the publication of the original book. Stover begins Phyllis Reynolds Naylor with a rationale for Naylor's place in young adult literature, even though she may be best known for her titles for children. Her work is discussed by theme, from the "Alice" books, to survival within a family, becoming an individual within a family context, and defining one's self in the world at large. Stover explores how each of these themes reflects issues in Naylor's own background. A final chapter addresses issues of censorship of Naylor's books and the author's strong support of young people's freedom to read and explore ideas about their religious beliefs, growing sexuality, and becoming their own persons through literature.?Barbara Chatton, College of Education, University of Wyoming, Laramie
