Flashy boys and cute girls : An analysis of gender patterns in a youth novel (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of the essay is to investigate how boys and girls are portrayed in the youth novel In the Ceiling the Stars Are Shining. The descriptive phrases used to depict the young people in the book are analysed to reveal the gender patterns. Selected chapters in the book are analysed through close reading, and the descriptive phrases are divided into the following categories: mental properties, appearance, social relations and actions. The result shows that the majority of the descriptive words are applied to the girls, especially the leading character, and throughout the novel they relate to prevailing gender patterns as they are identified in modern gender theory.
