In this study, feminist theories and insights from new discourses on female adolescence are employed in analyzing the discourses and cultural scripts used in telling stories about the relationship between teenage daughters and mothers in young adult novels and in short stories marketed for young adults and published between 1965 and 1998. Included are 100 novels and additional short stories which include African American daughter mother fiction and narratives set in novels in other cultural contexts.
