Each volume examines the life and work of a best-selling young adult novelist, helping both teachers and readers of young adult literature to understand better the authors they have read with such pleasure and fascination.

This unique series provides: a succinct, readable summary of the life and art of every leading young adult author- young readers with the means to get to know their favorite authors as real people, these studies are based on extensive interviews with the authors themselves- jargon-free literary analysis of one authors work with attention to plot, theme, character, setting, and imagery- a chronology, notes and references, selected bibliography, list of awards, photos, index, and more- teachers and librarians with insights and background material for promoting and teaching mid-grade and young adult novels.

In this one-of-a-kind study of the life and works of young adult novelist Barbara Wersba, Elizabeth Poe provides information about Wersbas fascinating life as well as in-depth analysis of her 16 young adult novels. Wersba is an enduring young adult writer whose ground-breaking novel The Dream Watcher, published in 1968, placed her in the forefront of young adult new realism.

She deals with difficult but important topics, such as alienated teens, improbable relationships, teenage sexuality, sexual orientation, parent/child misunderstandings, alcoholism, and artistic aspirations. Her writing, which is characterized by humor, insight, and emotional truth, is graced by frequent references to the world of literature and art.

Poe notes that although Barbara Wersba may have onlyone story to tell, she tells it uniquely in 16 young adult novels that provide insight into the lives of off-beat but enduring teenage misfits.
