Writers Are Not Their Characters
I am consistently baffled by the idiotic children on this site who do not understand the very simple concept of, “A writer is not their character(s).”
How can you not understand this concept?
How does it fly right over y’all’s heads?
How can people be this fucking stupid?
It’s so refreshing when YA books don’t have a “happy” ending where everyone lives happily ever after. A lot of authors that write for this age group tend to think, whether they intend to or not, that younger generations can’t handle it if the guy doesn’t get the girl, or the protagonist’s main…
One of the things I like about YA are the happy endings, but I completely agree: Every Day has the perfect ending. A happy ending simply would not have fit there.
Romantic YA Novels
Going through the YA Novel tag I run into a post showing people complaining about there being so much romance in YA novels. There are YA novels that aren’t romances. If you don’t like romance, then don’t look for books in that genre. It is after all a genre.
If anything they are the ones being sexist (they are calling the authors sexist), because they are all assuming the books were written only for young adult girls. Boys want to be loved just as much as girls want to be loved. They read romance as well. Tons of boys are fans of The Fault in Our Stars (a pure romance) and The Hunger Games (which also has a strong romance sub-plot).
It has nothing to do with girls need to be “fixed” by love, but that most people in the world desire love.
