Synopsis

More than a Game is a comprehensive overview of adolescent sports literature, its history, and contemporary trends in the field. Sports are a prominent part of American culture, and the growth of sports literature reflects America's passion for sports and athletes. This reference explains why sports literature for young adults deserves space in libraries, bookstores, and in secondary English classrooms. Additional chapters cover the history of young adult sports literature, sport in fiction and nonfiction, sports literature for young women, and the representation of coaches in young adult novels. Teachers, librarians and readers will appreciate the extensive booklists-more than 3000 sports titles-and additional reference sources to sports and sports literature.
