Here is the article: The Case for Raunchy Teen Lit
*Must Read* Article
With all the negative articles and discussions about YA lit and how "horrible/dark" the genre is, I wanted to share the following article with you. After reading it, my first thought was, "FINALLY, a positive article about YA lit and one that shows the importance of reading and/or why teens read the stuff they do!" The author makes a good point when she states: "Popular YA novels will reflect the world that teens are living in, and that world is undoubtedly imperfect." <--Not to sound grammatically incorrect, but ain't that the truth?!
