You go, Maureen!! I am so very grateful for strong, reasonable voices like Maureen, who know that YA books make a positive difference in teens' lives. And that if a book doesn't work for you, personally, just put it down!

Cheryl, tell Maureen to get on over to Red Room! We need to continue having this discussion and I'm sure she can contribute excellent ideas here!
