#RebelliousWriting -- Where Have All the Clean YA Books Gone?
If you read my other blog, you may have read this post last week, in which I announce that I'm joining the #RebelliousWriting movement, which is all about encouraging writers to create clean fiction for teens and younger readers. I'll be posting more about this in the future, like when the official website launches on August 9.
For the past few years, I've been putting a movie-style rating on the books I review here, and mentioning what kind of content the book has so that my blog readers will know if they'll be comfortable reading it.
Today, I'm debuting a brand new page for this blog! If you look up at the top of the page, you'll see a page marked "#RebelliousWriting Reading List." That is exactly what it sounds like -- my suggestions of clean, enjoyable books that I think teens (and adults) would enjoy. Some of them are classics. Some of them are brand-new. Some of them fall in between the two. But every book on it would NEVER receive a rating higher than PG-13 if it were a movie. I will add new books to that list as I encounter them, so whenever you're looking for something new to read, that list might give you some ideas.
