Extra Credit for Feed
Good research. To prepare for writing Feed, M.T. Anderson spent months reading hundreds of issues of Teen Vogue, Maxim, Seventeen, and other similar magazines, so that he could convincingly write (and parody) a teenaged voice.
Awards. Anderson has won many major awards for young adult literature. He was nominated for the National Book Award for Young People’s Literature, and in 2006 he won for Part One of Octavian Nothing.
