[Bonus] YA, appropriateness, and censorship

YA, appropriateness, and censorship

A.S. King is one of my favorite YA authors, not only for her amazing books (please go pick up the nearest copy of Reality BoyAsk the Passengers, or Please Ignore Vera Dietz if you haven’t already!) but also for how great of a person she is. I absolutely love this newest post of hers, which ties in nicely with the theme of the book club that Krista and I conducted in 643, which dealt with the darkness of young adult literature. I know that a lot of authors talk about the censorship of their own book sometimes, but I just really admire the way A.S. King wrote about it from her perspective..
