ARTICLE: A teen looks at the flaws in YA

One of my reviewers pointed out a new article from a teenager who is not a big fan of popular YA titles.  I found it a great, insightful read.  Kudos for Vivian DeRosa for a very articulate look at the vagaries and shortcomings of soft-baked YA novels.  Do I agree with everything she says - to some extent, yes, I do.  I think I am going to have to sit down and see if I can come up with a list of books that breaks Vivian's stereotypes, if just to give her a list of books to restore her faith in the genre.
