Portland, OR (
Hogan (librarian, Eastern Michigan U.) sets out to prove that comedy in young adult literature can address the same concerns as books focusing on teen angst, heartache and serious life lessons. He takes his examples from the treatment of adolescent life events by authors such as Daniel Pinkwater, Vande Velde and Joan Bauer. The organization of the text follows the stages of adolescent development and ends with a discussion of the coming-of-age novel. Annotation 2004 Book News, Inc.,
