This session will explore young adult fiction as a resource for educators and librarians who often deal with teenagers in crisis. With themed recommendation lists, Courtney and Joy will show how fiction is a safe place for teens to explore difficult issues and how they can be inspired by the characters they are reading about.

Joy N. Hensley ~ Biography
Joy N. Hensley is a middle and high school English teacher. There’s nothing that she’s not willing to try–including hiking 600 miles of the Appalachian trail. Once upon a time she went to a military school on a dare and then wrote Rites of Passage, a book set at a military school. She lives in Virginia with her husband and two children, finding as many ways as she can to never do another push-up again.
Courtney C. Stevens ~ Biography
Courtney C. Stevens grew up in Kentucky and lives in Nashville, Tennessee. She is an adjunct professor and a former youth minister. Her other skills include playing hide-and-seek, climbing trees, and being an Olympic torch bearer. She is also the author of Faking Normal, which Kirkus Reviews called “a story that resonates” and Publishers Weekly called a “rich debut,” as well as the e-novella The Blue-Haired Boy.
