Young Adult Fantasy Fiction in Recent Years: A Selective Annotated Bibliography

by Fitzgerald, Meghan A.

Abstract (Summary)
This selective annotated bibliography recommends and evaluates young adult fantasy fiction published between 2001 and 2008, with an emphasis on the last three years of that range. It presents the list of books in six subgenre categories. The scope of this work extends to monograph novels in non-graphic formats intended for audiences between grades 6 and 12, inclusively. This bibliography is primarily a resource for librarians, media specialists, teachers, and others who engage in the selection of books and in readers’ advisory for young adults. The fantasy genre for this audience is a popular and rapidly-growing one, and this document is intended to aid in the navigation of this field of literature, as well as to provide an updated and focused look at recent fantasy that has not yet had many years to be tested and establish a place (or not) in pre-existing collections.
