Abstract

Last week was more than a bit exciting. It was the first week of classes, I was able to make some initial arrangements with the local school district about the nature of the next Summit on YA lit, and the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) published a piece that critiqued YA Literature. Oh, don’t get me wrong, I am not immune to critique about a body of literature that I love. It happens. Debate is healthy and helps us reexamine the positions we hold. We might clarify our arguments and our positions. That is, if both parties are at least a bit informed on the topic of discussion.
