Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan
Description: Many contemporary children’s novels1 focus on the fictional world expe- riences of children ages 9–12. Contemporary realistic novels, a genre of children’s novels that presents a fictional child in a situation that a real child could have faced at the time the novel was written and released, focus on a child’s response to a difficult situation, and are centrally con- cerned with that child’s perceptions. The contemporary realistic chil- dren’s novel Bridge to Terabithia (Paterson 1977), for example, one of ten contemporary realistic children’s novels I explore in this book, is cen- trally concerned with the perceptions—the perceptual and psychological experiences—of ten-year-old Jess Aarons as he begins fifth grade in rural Virginia; and not surprisingly, given this concern, much of the novel’s meanings are invested in Jess’s perceptions.
