Links Round-Up (in Brief): UKYA, Teens & Autism, E-Readers, and More

5 Apr

UKYA, a new website “celebrating Young Adult fiction from the United Kingdom.” Read posts at Teen Librarian and Small Blue Thing to find out a bit more about UKYA.

Teens and Autism is an article written by a young person whose younger brother has autism.

A new study suggests that e-readers encourage boys to read more.

This article about “a real-life ‘Hunger Games'” in North Korea might spark a discussion amongst pupils or members of your teen reading group.

This isn’t exactly new, but if you want updates on The Reading Agency’s MyVoice project, check out the latest MyVoice Roadshow news.
