I received a copy of JANET & ME by Stan Mack this week and am looking forward to having some time to read it. It is the story of the relationship between Stan Mack and Janet Bode. I am a huge fan of their work in YA nonfiction and mourn the loss of Bode a few years ago. She was a gutsy woman who wrote with passion and heart about topics teens cared about. If you do not know her work, let me suggest finding one of these books:
VOICES OF RAPE
NEW KIDS IN TOWN
HEARTBREAK AND ROSES
I wrote about Janet and her books in Connie Zitlow's LOST MASTERPIECES OF YA LITERATURE (Scarecrow Press) if you want to know more.
