Our young adults are devouring this stuff. YA Lit is the only growth sector of the publishing industry these days. To parents, it can be disturbing that this ghoulish subject matter is what our eighth or ninth graders consider "reading for pleasure." It may even make you long for the days of Saturday morning cartoons.Really? You long for the days when our 14-year-olds avoided those scary, scary books and watched Bugs Bunny instead? Ooookay.
