YA for boys

There has been a lot of discussion recently during YAlitchat and kidlitchat on Twitter about there not being enough YA books for boys.

And a concern that boys leap from MG books straight to adult, and are missing out on YA.

Agency-sister Hannah Moskowitz has a great post on this topic today.

Go check it out.

Makes for interesting reading (and she says it so much better than I ever could!)

never though of it that way, but you are right! will have to look into that when my boy is getting to that age...

It really hit home for me, Kerrin, having 2 boys.

Something I never really thought of but now I'm reading loads of YA...it's so true.
