What Are Youths Reading?

Posted on Updated on

Recently I was reviewing the plots of YA novels as I decided I would try writing one.  After writing several children’s books, I thought it would be a nice next exercise. What do I know?

Recently published themes are the activities of homeless teens, kidnaped teens, teen prostitutes, runaways, muscular dystrophy, eating disorders, misfits and loners. Isn’t anyone writing or reading happy stories? Maybe that’s why I started writing  a historical story about a teenager who comes to America as a bonded servant.  We’ll see how that goes.
