Young People Should Read About Life As It Is Lived


I have oft been asked about writing sensitive content in young adult works; more particularly, writing sex and violence in young adult literature. I believe young people should read about life as it is lived and have written a few articles on this polarizing and unwieldy controversy. For ease of access, I have listed links to the articles here. Please feel free to comment and leave questions below. I'll do my best to answer them.
