7 About the NOTE Bibliography Series The National Council of Teachers of English is proud to be part of a process that we feel is important. It begins when an educator who knows literature and its value to students and teachers is chosen by the NCTE Executive Committee to be a booklist editor. That editor then works with teachers and librarians who review, select, and annotate hundreds of new trade books sent to them by publishers. It's a complicated process, one that can last three or four years. But because of their dedication and strong belief in the need to let others know about the good literature that's available, these professionals volunteer their time in a way that serves as an inspiration to all of us. The members of the committee that compiled this volume are listed on one of the first pages, and we are grateful for their hard work. In our bibliography series are five different booklists, each focused on a particular audience, each updated regularly. These are Adventuring with Books (pre-k through grade 6), Kaleidoscope (multicultural literature, grades K through 8), Your Reading (middle school/junior high), Books for You (senior high), and High InterestEasy Reading (middle school, junior/senior high reluctant readers). Together, these volumes list thousands of the most recent children's and young adult trade books. Although the works included cover a wide range of topics, they all have one thing in common: they're good books that students and teachers alike enjoy. Of course, no single book is right for everyone or every purpose, so inclusion in this booklist is not necessarily an endorsement from NCTE. However, it does indicate that the professionals who make up the booklist committee feel that the work in question is worthy of teachers' and students' attention, whether for its informative or aesthetic qualities. On the other hand, exclusion from an NCTE booklist is not necessarily a judgment on the quality of a given book or publisher. Many factorsspace, time, availability of certain books, publisher participationmay influence the final shape of the list. We hope that you will find this hooklist a useful resource in discovering new titles and authors, and we hope that you will collect the other booklists in the NCTE series. Our mission is to help improve the

11 ix Acknowledgments This edition of Your Reading represents the hard work of a group of dedicat2d colleagues and professionals. Our committee responded enthusiastically to the challenge of reviewing hundreds of books and creating well-written annotations that will stimulate reading by junior high and middle school students. For two years, they received the boxes of books we sent them, searched for additional titles, and contributed their energy and expertise to the project. Each member of our committee took responsibility for a chapter of the book. They answered our cries for help and responded with extra annotations and advice whenever we called upon them. We cannot thank them enough! These teachers, librarians, and university professors are a unique and special group. In addition to the members of the committee, a few other people contributed their time and talent. Catherine Bush Partridge read many of the books in the sports chapters. Dawn Bradford and Cathy Moore also reviewed books and wrote annotations. Also, we must offer a special thanks to the publishers whose generosity provided the books that are the heart and lift- of this project. We appreciate their commitment to the promotion of a population of readers. Without their support, this booklist would not exist. The NCTE staff, while experiencing changes during our tenure as editors, supported us by answering our relentless questions about format, editing, and organization. Finally, we could not have done this project without the continuing support and encouragement from our husbands, Vic Samuels and Brad Beers. They lugged boxes of books, made trips to the post office, provided advice on wordprocessing problems, lived with piles of books and papers cluttering every room of our houses, prepared dinners, tended to children and other family obligations, and generally made it possible for us to complete the book. Barbara G. Samuels and G. Kvlene Beers

12 xi Foreword: We Have the Power Aladdin had a genie at his command. "Take me wherever I wish, Genie. Bring me whatever I want. Give me the world, the moon, the stars." Powerful stuff... for those days before books. Today we don't need to rub a lamp to get our wishes. All we have to do is open a book of our choice and travel wherever our mood takes us. That's real power. Want to have fun being scared? We can join Agatha Christie, pairing up with private eyes, or amateur detectives to cleverly solve crimes; or we can use our wits to escape from danger. Have a yen for fantasy? Search for unicorns, wizards, and magic stardust. Slip into the enchanted worlds created by C. S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien. Looking for excitement? Turn a book cover and jump into adventure to rival anything an. enchanted genie could dream up. Walk on the moon with Neil Armstrong. Pilot a spacecraft and outwit evil forces from another planet. Save a civilization. Delve into history with the courageous Anne Frank and Rosa Parks. Leave our friends and family to join a wagon train heading for Oregon. Fight beside Jim Bowie and Davy Crockett at the Alamo. Search for a brother missing after the Battle of Gettysburg. Dream of love through the sonnets of Elizabeth Barrett Browning and William Shakespeare. Slip with the fog and Carl Sandburg into the rhythm of Chicago. Let our minds play with the magic of e. e. cummings and T. S. Eliot. Learn of the world around us. Learn of the worlds within us. Read to understand our love, our pain, and our eagerness to find ourselves so we can grow. Step into science. March into math. Explore. Invent. Create new diva ms. Books, books, books. Enjoy them to their fullest. Reading is as important to our quality of life as breathing, sleeping, and eating. Read the old hooks and read the new ones. Gulp them down like popcorn or savor them, tasting with tiny bites. Delight in familiar favor- 2

13 xii Foreword ites, but investigate different flavors. Gobble them down or spit them out and reach for another. Relish the freedom to explore and expand the world we live in. Read to run through the gamut of joy, laughter, excitement, indignation, anger, and even tears. Read about books in the pages that follow. Make choices, then find those books and enjoy! Read! We have the power.

14 Introduction My task which I am trwing to achieve is, by the rower of the written word to make you hear, to make you feelit is, before all, to make you see. Joseph Conrad Like Joseph Conrad, the NCTE Committee on the Middle School and Junior High Book list wants to help you feel, hear, and seethrough the power of books. Because we believe in the power of words, we, the writers of Your Reading, spent over two years reading, rereading, discussing, sharing, and writing about books we think you will enjoy and-find meaningful. The purpose of our book is to connect you with titles that will enhance your reading. Whether you are looking for a book because you need to complete an assignment or project, because you want to learn more about a topic that interests you, or because you are browsing to find something good to read, Your Reading can help you find the right book. Published by the National Council of Teachers of English, the various editions of Your Reading provide an ongoing annotated list for junior high and middle school students, teachers, librarians, and parents. What books are listed in this edition of Your Reading? Thousands of books are published every year. It's impossible to read all of them. To help you find the best books, a committee of teachers and librarians screened books that were published in 1993 and We also included reissues of older books, so a book that was originally published prior to 1993 but reissued during 1993 or 1994 may be annotated in this edition of Your Reading. Although we can't say we read everything published in those two years, we tried to identify as many books as possible that junior high and middle school students would find useful, interesting, and meaningful. How is the listing of books organized in Your Reading? As we read the books, we found that they seemed to group themselves in a variety of ways. A quick look at the Table of Contents will show you that Your Reading is organized into seven sections and twenty-four chapters. Within each chapter, the annotations are arranged alphabetically by the author's last name. 14

15 xiv Introduction The first section, Growing Up, has four chapters about teens maturing into adulthood. Novels in the chapter called "Family and Home" are focused on family issues such as sibling rivalries, divorce, relationships with parents and stepparents, or coping with aging grandparents. The other chapters in this section involve friends, romance, school, sports, or tough life situations. Perhaps vou prefer to let your imagination wander in the Imagined Lands section. "Myths, Legends, and Folklore" includes versions of stories ha -I -I L-I own,o us through the generations. Many wonderful new editions of familiar stories are listed in this chapter, as cyell as tales from cultures around the world. Books '.)f fantasy and science fiction to stimulate your creative thinking are Aso a part of this section. Do You like books with suspense, adventure, or unexplained phenomena? Shudder and Shake is the section for you. Mysteries and survival stories, ghosts and horror stories \ill stir your blood and keep You reading to the last page. The hooks annotated in People, Problems, and Places: Yesterday and Today can help you with your social studies projects. The books are grouped together in five chapters: "Looking Back: Historical Fiction," "Understanding the Past: History," "People to Know: Autobiography and Biography," "Customs, Cultures, and Lands," and "Analyzing Issues of Today." In these books, you can get to know fascinating people, places, and events that have shaped history, as \ Yell as issues, people, and problems that are creating history today. I low do You feel about science? Whether you want to know more about the environment and how to save our planet, wonder about the way things work, enjoy studying the stars and planets, find fascinating the habits of animals, or want to know more about your own body, the section titled Science All around You offers many choices. (It might also provide ideas for a science-fair project.) Obviously, some categories overlap. In the section Words to Remember we grouped all the short stories in one chapter and the poems in another. Short stories include some ghost stories that could also be listed in Chapter 9, "Occult, Horror, Ghosts, and Unexplained Phenomena," and other stories about families or growing up. But we chose to list them by genre. One wav you can find books about a subject that might be listed in another category is to look up the topic in the subject index. If you look under "ghosts" in the subject index, for example, you will find a listing of all the books about ghosts, not just those in Chapter 9. We ended this volume of )i)ur Read* with Facts, Figures, and Fun. Ehis i the section where you'll find books about how to build or make 15

16 Introduction XV things, books about your favorite sports or entertainment, books of jokes, and trivia. Browse through this section. Something is sure to catch your attention. How can I use the different indexes at the end of the book? At the end of Your Reading, you will find three different indexes. Each index directs you to a chapter and annotation number (i.e., 2.22 directs you to Chapter 2, the twenty-second annotation). One index lists the authors of the books alphabetically. Another index lists the titles. The index you may use the most often is the subject index. If you are looking for a book on a particular topic, check here. For example, suppose you want to learn more about Native Americans. If you look under Native Americans in the subject index, you will be directed to Fly Like an Eagle, a novel in Chapter 1, The Choctaw Code, historical fiction in Chapter 11, and Wounded Knee, a history book in Chapter 12. Though each of these books is annotated in a different chapter, the index will lead you directly to them. Can Your Reading help me with a school assignment? Absolutely! We hope you will use Your Reading regularly to help you find books about the topics you are studying in school. Suppose your class is about to begin a thematic unit on the environment. An entire chapter of Your Reading is devoted to books that focus on saving the planet. Browsing through that chapter should lead you to several helpful books. In addition, the subject index might lead you to fictional works about teens who worked on environmental issues. Perhaps your assignment is to write a paper about some aspect of World War II. The subject index will point you to specific novels in the "Looking Back: Historical Fiction" chapter; to biographies and autobiographies in "People to Know"; and to historical accounts in "Understanding the Past: History." The slbject index wili save you the trouble of reading every annotation in those three chapters to find the specific books that will help you collect information for your paper. Does Your Reading include series books? Of course. Many of the books published today are organized into series by the book publishers. We annotated at least one book in any series we selected, and we included the titles or subjects of other books in the series that were published during 1993 and To help answer your questions and guide your research, the subject index will lead you to some of

17 xvi Introduction these other series books. We could not include the names of all the books in some of the series because new books continue to be published. For nonfiction series, our subject indey at the end of the book includes information about other titles in the series. For example, an ecology series that has separate books on endangered animals would be listed in the subject index under each of the endangered animals included. How can we find out about titles published before 1993? To find annotations of books published prior to 1993, we recommend that you look in previous editions of Your Reading. The National Council of Teachers of English has published nine prior editions, and one of them may help you find the book you want. To help you identify some outstanding titles published prior to 1993, we have included an appendix titled "100 Books from 25 Years of Young Adult Literature." This is a list of one hundred of the best books published during the past twenty-five years. Obviously, our list does not have every important book published since 1967, but we have tried to include the best-known, touchstone books for junior high and middle school students. If you haven't read many of these, you might want to try a few. How can we identify books that have won awards or other recognition in 1993 and 1994? Some journals, groups of teachers and librarians, and even young people themselves publish lists of what they consider the best books for each year. To help you identify those titles which others have recognized, we have included a list of noted books in the appendix "Award-Winning Books in Your Reading." Because we didn't want to limit your reading to only those books which had been recognized as "best" by others, we have placed this information at the end of the book rather than within the chapters. That way, you can select the books that meet your own particular needs, not necessarily those that others have chosen for you. The quotation from Joseph Conrad at the beginning of this introduction refers to his goal as a writer, using the power of words to make you see. All the authors in this book have used words in powerful ways. As you wind your way through Your Reading, we hope you'll enjoy reading their words. We did! Reading helps us see ourselves and the world around us in new ways. Enjoy! 17

18 I Growing Up He was always reading. At his meals an open book lay by his side on the table. His mutton and potatoes might grow cold, hut his interest in a work never cooled. He invariably sallied forth, book in hand, reading to himself if alone, or aloud if he had a companion. He took a volume to bed with him and read as long as his candle lasted; then he sleptimpatiently, no doubtuntil it was light, and he recommenced reading at the early dawn.
