I found this post today and truly appreciate it. I do agree that YA is getting edgier than it used to be. For me, being a religious person, I do not read popular books that have graphic content in them for multiple reasons. It’s interesting how the demographics are changing. I wanted to share this since it has great thoughts on the subject. If you have kids that are reading more, this is a good talk to have with them 🙂 Regardless of where you sit on the subject, it is interesting for those of us who read books in the 90’s and 2000’s, how very different YA is today. I’m curious to see what you think about this.
