Background and Aim: The adolescence period is one of the most important stages in the life of each individual, and the basic component of this period is identity. So far, there have been different views about this period of life. One of these is the psychosocial theory of Ericsson, which defined the crisis as "identity against the confusion of the role". In addition, other people like Marcia and Berzonsky have referred to identity and identity processing styles. Story books are tools for gaining knowledge and identity in adolescents. The purpose of this study is to examine the status of adolescence stories in terms of dimensions and identity components.
Methods: The present research is applied in terms of purpose. The method of this research is descriptive. Also, content analysis approach has been used to collect research data. The research population includes all the fiction books of the age groups D and E, which were published by the Children's and Young Children's Intellectual Development Center in the years 1390-94, which totally cover 180 story titles. .
Results: Findings show that the focus of the stories is on individual identity, family identity, group identity, and national identity. Other types of identity differ in compilation and translation stories. In general, the main characters of the stories (compilation and translation) are confused. After that, the status of the identity of the person is too late and the status of the identity is successful. The fast-paced situation also includes the least percentage of stories.  Also, most of the story's main characters used the information processing style. The other dominant style of information processing by the main characters of the stories is a confused style and the least amount is devoted to the normative style. T
Conclusion: In general, according to the findings of the present research, it is completely clear that in the fiction books examined, different types of identity are not taken into account in the same way. It is certain that little and very little attention is given to other identities, negative effects and serious and irreparable damage to the formation and identity of adolescents. Also, in assessing the status of the identity of the main characters of teenage stories, the findings showed that the abundance of these characters in the field of identification is different. In the study of identity processing styles, the same characters were not found in the main characters of the stories studied.
Keywords: story books, story character, adolescents, identity, Ericson's psychosocial theory, Marcia's identity status model, Berzonsky's information processing theory.
