Which position has todays teenage literature? A study on how todays teenage literature is met by its target group (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to investigate young teenagers 13-16 reading habits and attitudes concerning todays modern teenage literature especially written for the young teenagers. The study also includes the readers apprehension of the literature and how the target group is reached. The study is based on results from questionnaires, interviews and by compiling summaries of literature relevant to this study. Earlier research has been compared with results from this study. Reflections made by teachers and librarians concerning the youths reading habits are an integral part of the study. Theoretical approaches, mainly "reader-oriented" theories, have been studied and actively used in the analysis of the results. The study result shows that young teenagers often read teenage literature and prefer this compared to adult literature. They found the literature to fulfil their expectations of themes, ability of identification and realism. It also had a positive impact on the readers, often leading to reflections. The main reason for reading was pleasure. However, there is one group, mainly boys, that reject the teenage literature in favour of the fantasy literature. The study shows how important it is with an intermediary of the teenage literature. The teachers seem to have an especially important role in guiding the youth into the teenage literature.
